My Students

This is my very first year teaching and I’m super excited to get started! My students are 5-6 years old and full of energy! Kindergarten is a crucial time in a child's life, as they are just beginning to understand what it means to be a part of a bigger community and are growing tremendously emotionally and academically. This age is the time where many students begin to form opinions about school on whether they like it or not, if they think they are "smart" or not, and form a work ethic. My students have various needs and come from a wide range of backgrounds and abilities. I am eager to work with them and give them the best education as I possibly can.

My Project

My students must keep up with the latest advancements in education to spark an interest in reading. Education is changing every single day, and so are the interest of my students. Students in my classroom like to read about superheroes and villains. My school media center doesn't have a large collection of books for Kindergarten when it comes to this topic, so I would like to have books that will hold their interests and keep them reading in my classroom.

Struggling readers will often pick up a comic book because the pictures and visuals are less intimidating than a typical book.

Students who read these graphic novels find reading fun and begin to read more for enjoyment! Helping students begin to learn that reading is fun is a perfect way to build better readers. Comic books are a gateway to better reading skills for reluctant readers. My students will love getting their hands on comic books.
