My Students

Writing is a huge part of our curriculum. We write everyday and about various topics.

My students are a great bunch of five to six year-old, curious children.

They are energetic and eager to learn. Many of my students are English language learners and many have to deal with difficult situations in their lives. Though our school may not be located in a great area, I work hard to give my students an inviting place to learn, a chance to experience new and memorable things, and try to create an opportunity for a better life.

My Project

Kindergarten forms the foundation for the other grades. For this reason, it is important that I encourage and help my students develop their writing skills throughout the curriculum. The journals that I am requesting will be used for all different types of writing, including reading responses, story telling, and expressing our feelings. My students will also be able to work on their drawing, coloring, and handwriting skills using this journal.

It is so important that my students write every day, and these journals will certainly help to do that.

I love that they will be able to share their ideas and their knowledge in one journal. Also, since it is a bound book, their parents and I will be able to see the progress throughout the year.
