My Students

What's more exciting than finding a special spot in a classroom to sit and read your book? I have a class of wonderful and excited kindergarten students. My class consists of second language learners, speech students, and a mix of students who have attended preschool and some who have not.

This year has been a great reading adventure for my five and six year old students.

My students get so excited when they sit down and read a book all by themselves.

Welcome to my classroom! Welcome to an environment where we are learning about the world of literacy every day! Welcome to kindergarten!

My Project

Kindergarten is the time when most children are introduced to the wonderful world of literacy. We spend most of our day learning about letters, letter sounds, and reading books filled with fun and exciting stories.

My classroom needs a special classroom carpet rug for the students to go to and read...a Reading Nook!

This area will be filled with just right books, including fiction and nonfiction leveled A-E readers. The decorated reading nook will also include a beautiful alphabet classroom carpet rug. My students will be so excited to sit in the Reading Nook and read or share a book with a friend. I am excited about adding this special area to our kindergarten classroom.
