Bookin' On Up!

My students need access to a library of Spanish books that are engaging to use during read to self, read to someone and listen to during our daily reading centers.

My Students

Every day we work with letters, sounds, and creating words. Afterwords, students listen to a story that I read aloud, and we discuss vocabulary from the story and students respond to comprehension questions. After that time, students work in centers on reading tasks to increase their reading skills.

I work with a class of Spanish speaking students who are on their way to becoming bilingual.

Students in my class are provided free lunch, breakfast and afternoon snack to ensure good nutrition and healthy learning. Our elementary school is a relatively new building built about 7 years ago to serve a diverse population on the border of Mesquite and Dallas. Students dwell in local homes and apartments. Many of them ride a bus to school.

My Project

The requested books will be used to support our literacy-based centers. In these centers, students read to themselves, to others and listen to books on technology. Each of these centers support literacy learning and expose students to a variety of skills including, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and reading stamina. It is my goal to send every student from my room to 1st grade reading on or above grade level. Receiving these materials will support this goal.

Students who live in high poverty situations have more limited access to books.

When this happens vocabulary is also adversely impacted. During the Kindergarten year, students need to be encircled with rich literacy based experiences, including easy access to books, in order to increase their reading opportunities. Upon doing so, students will reach their on and above grade level reading goals, making them ready for 1st grade in the coming year.
