My Students

The kindergarten students in my classroom come from a community of diverse learners from many social and cultural backgrounds. Our school is an Expanded Learning Time School (ELT) and a Title I school. Many of the students in the classroom have never attended preschool. I have many English Language Learners in my classroom.

The students are bright, eager, and excited to learn.

It is exciting to see the looks on their faces when I read them a story and the passion they have to learn. Many of my students have already faced hardships in their lives.

My Project

I have created a week-long unit on racism for my kindergarten classroom. I will use the book, and arts and crafts supplies to support my students' learning about diversity and racism. I am very excited to present the unit that I researched and created.

Racism needs to be stopped, and I'm committed to having that "difficult" conversation with my students.

I'm very proud of the unit I have created and hope to make a difference in the world.

The pencils, birthday crowns, and bracelets will be used for students. The ten frames will support our math lessons remotely or at school.
