My Students

"I'm starting with the man in the mirror" are famous lyrics by the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. I apply this song to teaching my students.

My kindergarten students are such a wonderful group of young people eager to learn each day.

They live in a high poverty area and attend a Title I school in our district. All of my students are on free and reduced lunch and breakfast. My students love to learn new things and love coming to school every day!

My Project

The resources I have asked for are mostly for enhancing literacy skills in the students. My students have a difficult time grasping basic reading skills such as comprehension, fluency, blending sounds to create words, recognizing beginning and ending sounds, sight words, alphabet recognition and sounds, and all of the other major skills needed to read and succeed. The activities I have requested will give the students various options in learning and manipulating to gain the reading skills. With these awesome literacy materials, my students will learn how to read! They will learn how to put letter sounds together and create real words. It is so important in this day and age for students to receive a good education and learn to read and write in order to be successful in their life. My students already have a difficult home life, with little to no support from their guardians. I want to be able to give these students an excellent start to their education and build a strong foundation.

Your donations and generosity to my classroom, and more importantly, my students will help tremendously.

My students strive each day to work as hard as they can and work the best they can to achieve their goals. These literacy materials will truly help the students learn and experience reading and literacy in various ways while still having fun. Your donations to these additions to the classroom would mean the world to me and to see my students learning will be the greatest reward.
