My Students

I am a kinder teacher of energetic kindergartners. Some of my kids had schooling in PK and PK 3, but for others, this year has been their first year in a school setting.

My students love learning through exploration during centers time.

They love computers and tablets but they don't have many chances to use technology at home. The number of students in my school is growing. There were four PK classes last year and this year there are 5 kinder classes. My classroom was opened this year and for this reason I don't have many resources. I am wishing that we had more beginning reader books, some general supplies and a few technology tools.

My Project

We do centers time every day. In the morning there are Literacy Centers and one group uses technology to read or practice writing. We only have three tablets and four whiteboards. Each group has four or five students so they have to share most of the time.

One group shares three tablets to do programs such as Epic reading.

Other group uses four whiteboards to write the words of the week or sight words. My class would benefit from using more tools for writing and improving their learning.

If we had more tablets I could create student profiles and each student would access books and activities that match their reading level.
