Students Who Love to Read, Love to Learn!

My students need a variety of reading materials that will promote fluency, phonics, sight word recognition, and vocabulary skills. The materials selected will allow students to have a choice in their learning.

My Students

My classroom consist of 20 wonderful Kindergarten students. My classroom is made up of a wide variety of level learners, ranging from the highest level of gifted to the lowest level of Title 1 students. However, one thing all my students have in common is that they are hungry and eager to learn, especially when they are given the opportunity to use technology as a tool for learning! Technology allows my kindergarten to express and demonstrate, create, and apply learning in a variety of ways! There is no limit to what my students can do. My students are the future and the future is now.

My Project

My students may all be different and learn differently, but they all long and desire the hunger to learn. Students need to have access to a classroom leveled library. This library will help my students become better readers. I would love for our classroom to have a library packed with books that will drive the student's imagination and curiosity. The variety of leveled readers will give students the opportunity to have access to books that on their personal reading level. My goal is to have a classroom library with plenty of books that my students can actually read and have the opportunity to select the ones that interest them. The sight word games will help my students to learn new words and become more fluent readers. We know students’ learn best when they have the opportunity to make their own choices and choose something that interest them. These materials will do just that! My goal is to create a literacy rich classroom and make learning to read fun. After all, Kindergarten lays the foundation for the rest of their lives. If I can do one thing this year, I want it to be that my students developed a love for learning that will last a lifetime.
