My Students

I teach Kindergarten in a diverse urban area of the Philadelphia School District. I have 30 learners in my classroom, many of whom have been diagnosed with special needs or are awaiting a diagnosis. I have also been designated as the English language learner classroom. My students come to school eager to learn, and I am happy to be there with them to share and instill a love of learning.

In my school, 100 percent of the students are eligible for free lunch.

Many of the students in my classroom have not been exposed to education previous to entering my classroom.

My Project

Many of my students come to school for the first time without any prior exposure to reading or phonemic awareness. By providing my students with tablets, each of them will be able to access reading intervention programs every day to build beginning reading skills.

The reading intervention program, which will be accessed on the tablets, helps students build letter recognition skills, rhyming skills, and blending/segmenting skills.

These skills are essential to build a positive foundation to become proficient readers.

The tablets can also be used for a listening center. One of the best ways for Kindergarten students to learn how to read is to hear stories being read to them. Also, since they are young students, the protective cases will ensure the tablets will stay safe for daily use.
