My Students

This year, my kindergarten classroom is composed of twenty-five students: 18 girls and 7 boys. My students are energetic, curious, and eager to learn. They hail from different backgrounds, but they love being able to learn about the world around them together.

“The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be ignited.” – Plutarch.

My students have a million burning questions and such an immense desire to learn. As a teacher, there is no greater satisfaction than listening to them as they talk about all the things they are learning and seeing the smile on their face as they do so.

My Project

Most of my students begin their reading journey in kindergarten. They thoroughly enjoy coming together on the carpet to hear new stories, excitedly anticipating the silly voices and facial expressions I give different characters to keep them entertained.

Now that my students are beginning to read independently, the tables have turned, and they are the ones making silly voices and faces to captivate their audience.

I want to keep that spark ignited by offering my students non-fiction texts, such as books about life past and present, as well as fictional texts, such as Elefante y cerdita (Elephant and Piggie), that pique their interests.

These books will serve as read-aloud texts or as texts to be featured in our "monthly picks" bookshelf, which highlights books related to a theme, holiday, or author we may be discussing. The Elephant and Piggie stuffed animals would help showcase our growing collection of Elephant and Piggie books, which my students love reading. With your help, I hope to continue to foster a love of reading in my classroom. Thank you for considering our project!
