My Students

My kindergarten classroom is a warm and welcoming space. It is a place that will pique interest and learning while students feel safe to share and have fun. I will have a kindergarten class filled with students of different backgrounds and learning styles. The students range from ages 4-5. They are experiencing elementary school for the first time, and I want to engage them as much as possible. I hope to provide these students with a fun and engaging environment.

My Project

My school is starting Reading Workshop this year. As I am very excited to bring this program to my classroom, I would like it to be a success. In an effort to reorganize my classroom library, new book bins to help level books and organize them in coordinating colors will help students find books and reshelve them easily. The student book bin will enable the students to keep their books organized and easily take their bin to a reading spot. They will also be able to put their bin back in a specific place. The reading subscription will allow students to be read to in class and at home.
