My Students

I want all my students to be able to learn and grow as much as possible in my classroom. These books and book bags would help me make my students learn to love reading as much as I do. This would also help me let them grow and learn at their individual reading levels.

I have a great range of students in my class.

Some of my students come to kindergarten without any preschool experience while others have gone for one or two years. Some of my students have limited access to books at their home while others have many books. Some of my students do not have access to any books at their reading level in their home. My students are eager and ready to learn. They LOVE when I read aloud to them everyday, especially during snack when I read Junie B. Jones. We like to discuss her choices and what we could do instead to help us become better leaders. Our school is rural, which serves all income levels, is full day kindergarten and is a Leader in Me School.

My Project

I think that reading is KEY in kindergarten and in elementary school. Reading helps students become better writers, learners and overall students! I have a leveled library organized in my classroom. Students 'shop' once a week to get books at their reading level and books that they are interested in. I also have a Home Reading Program where books are sent home at their individual reading level. Students read these books with their parents and then return them for a new book when they are ready. I read aloud to students about 3-5 times everyday. I read a chapter out loud from a chapter book every day at snack time and read as many pictures books each day as I can. I want to help students learn to love to read and WANT to read as much as they can everyday.

I'm trying to create a life long love of reading for my students.

So much, in fact that at the end of every day we read for 10-15 minutes if we have time. This time is based on how quickly they pack up. They are so motivated and pack up so quickly now, that we read for at least 15 minutes at the end of everyday and they WANT more. I believe that Reading and Read Alouds are one of the most powerful things in Kindergarten.
