I teach in a low-income/high poverty school district. My school is a Title I school. My students are faced with daily challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I try to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are smart, passionate, and creative.
They love to read and to learn new things. Many of them are being raised in a single parent household and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. From the moment they enter my classroom I focus on their potential. I may not be able to control their home lives, but I can control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire them to stay on a path for academic success.
My students are digging deep into sight word knowledge. However, we don't have many sight word manipulatives in our classroom. Because of this, my students really struggle with learning sight words. These manipulatives will be used during centers and during small group time to practice sight word knowledge.
My kindergarten students are hands on learners and having sight word magnets and stamps will really aid them in learning sight words.
Center time is a fun time in kindergarten. Having a center for sight words will not only be fun for my students, but will also help them become better readers.
