Ms. Tasha from Flat Rock MI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Piece of Preschool, Early Literacy Reading FUN!

Help me give my students read aloud books that support early literacy in preschool. These books are rich in print and also vocabulary and content. These books are eye catching and developmentally appropriate for all of our children.

My Students

My students are part of GSRP in a small town called Flat Rock, Michigan. GSRP stands for Great Start Readiness Program and it is a state funded 4 year old preschool for low income children and families. This program gives children from all cultures, ethnicities, and various incomes an opportunity to learn and grow within our school district.

Every morning, the children enter the classroom full of energy and ready to learn.

We have been focusing on language and literacy with an emphasis on reading and letter sounds and shapes.

My Project

The focus is literacy knowledge and skills development in an age appropriate way.

We have 2 small group (6-8 children) read alouds daily.

These focus on attention to print, vocabulary and comprehension. Read alouds with reference to print include verbal and non-verbal strategies for drawing children's attention to print with bold text, counting words, and pointing out the pictures in the books. It also includes talking about the front and back covers, authors and different parts of the book. Read alouds with a comprehension and vocabulary focus include discussion before, during and after the reading. Age appropriate explanations of the words within the text, and using the vocabulary words in different parts of the day.

Also during the day we have several opportunities for the children to access the Book Area and all the books available to either read on their own or ask a teacher to read to them.
