My Students

Title 1 School - Developmental kindergarten is such an exciting group of mixed interests, abilities, and goals. Some of my students are learning to read, write, and count, while some of their classmates are learning to imitate sounds or hold a paintbrush/pencil. In this class, we are building a literacy community around what we have in common and our shared experiences. I teach in a wing of five kindergarten classes: four general education/ESL and a one bilingual. As my students make gains in my classroom, they begin to try small chunks of the day with their typically developing peers. My classroom is about building skills to get included. The work we do in this classroom is building relationships, staying with the group, following directions, and accessing general education content in different ways. We celebrate little wins together each day.

Going forward with our new normal 10 students are face 2 face and 8 are virtual.

These numbers change often and we are needing resources to further continue our learning virtually and in-person. We plan to use these resources as a fundamental tool in guided reading. In kindergarten they need to have a firm foundational skill in reading to be successful!

My Project

Keeping an organized desk area daily in my classroom is an opportunity for our students, especially when we transition from reading to math. Using the classroom organized chair covers, will allow students to keep their desk area clear from writing tools, manipulative or spirals. The organizer keep student for having to search for items in their crates. When something goes awry, students know that they must shuffle through papers, spirals, baggies to simple find subject spiral, get a new marker, new eraser, or the last choice, pencil and paper. Even though they are great about doing this, it is distracting for many of my students who have focusing issues and they miss important instruction form either myself or other students. By having these storage covers at their chairs, students will be able to avoid all of these problems and focus on increasing their learning!
