A Love for Storytime

My students need read aloud books to foster their love of storytime.

My Students

Remember how captivated you were by your favorite book being read to you by your teacher in kindergarten? Not only was your teacher able to provide you with engaging stories. Those stories taught you life lessons, concepts and skills that you will keep forever.

My students love learning and getting ready for first grade.

They are learning to be life-long learners through the development of listening, speaking, writing, and problem solving. They are funny, witty, creative and energetic. We are a community cheering each other on to success as we learn and grow together.

My Project

My students LOVE storytime. With the new Common Core standards, we need to revamp our storytime. We need books that are aligned with the new Common Core standards as well as books that they just can't get enough of. These stories will allow them to develop the skills and learn concepts they will need to be successful in first grade and beyond.

Donations to this project will transform our classroom!

With each purposeful read aloud, my students will not just be listening to stories to listen to stories. They will have fun AND develop specific skills and concepts taught through these exemplar books suggested by the new Common Core standards.
