I am a first-year kindergarten teacher! The student make-up is 81% Hispanic with many students being ELLs, and nearly all students come from low-income households.
We come together each day to be a community of learners, helping each other to grow and do our very best.
They love hands-on, active, and engaging projects and challenges that will allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They begin their love for learning in my classroom and continue throughout their educational career!
My kindergartners are beginning to read, and the best way to practice their reading skills is with some of the amazing books in these two collections. I know that with the collection of books I selected, my little kindergartners will gain a love for reading. I will be using these books during our read-aloud time to provide interesting ways to foster the love of reading. I will then provide the opportunity for students to also grab these to read during their free time. I know my students love these characters, and I cannot wait to see their faces when they arrive!
I always try to do what I can to help my students learn in fun and engaging ways, but my budget doesn't always allow for those experiences.
