My Students

Imagine walking into your very first school classroom EVER. For many of my sweet kindergarten students, this is the case! My students come from various cultures, families, and backgrounds in the middle Georgia area ready to enter a world of learning! Our school and community are growing quickly and I want to meet the needs of my eager students in the best ways possible. They jump into this classroom each morning ready to learn and work hard to achieve their goals.

My Project

Learning to read and write is hard work! I have chosen several different titles to serve as read alouds or mentor texts in my reading and writing workshop lessons. We work through these books together as I help my students learn not only to read, but to LOVE to read! I will also use many of these books as examples as my students learn to write different types of writing.

Reading should be enjoyable for EVERY child!

My classroom is full of students from different cultures, families, and backgrounds. I need more diverse books that students of all kinds can relate to! These books include rich language and visible characters that are so important for students to learn and relate to as they continue to learn and grow on their life journey!
