My Students

I teach kindergarten students that come from a diverse background. I work in a magnet school so my students come from urban and suburban homes.

Although they are all coming from a variety of backgrounds, they all come to school eager to learn and explore all that they can together.

My goal, as their teacher, is to help them learn and grow as much as they can and to prepare them for the real world by teaching them the skills they will need to be successful students throughout their education.

My Project

My kindergarten students are working hard at becoming writers. They love to see their work in published books. I would like to set up a publishing center where my students and I can turn their writing into finished books.

My students and I can use the Swingline binding machine, laminator, laminator sheets and cardstock to turn their writing into pieces that they can be proud of.

Writing can be very challenging in kindergarten and it can be hard to make it engaging for students. By being able to produce finished books at the end of each writing unit the students will be more invested in the whole writing process.
