My students need colorful picture books to help engage their brain and become more eager readers.
As second language learners, many of my students enter my classroom not knowing how to speak any English. What has amazed me year after year, though, is their ability to band together as a family and help one another succeed? The students in my room learn not only Math, Reading, Writing, Science and Social Studies, but they learn how to use their manners, be kind, and help each other no matter what their background story is.
All of my kids have one thing in common though, and that is their love for learning.
The students have very curious minds and are constantly stretching my thinking with their questions, comments, and points of view. Even the struggling students are eager learners and are very determined to make growth in their skills to ensure they can help their peers in need. It is the hard work and perseverance of these students that continue to encourage me to give my all.
Picture books are vital to any elementary classroom and so is organization. With flexible seating in full swing within our classroom, the organization has fallen by the wayside because the students no longer have their own assigned desk to store supplies. Materials and books are scattered all over the classroom as the students continue to work and stay engaged. This is what the book bins will be used for-- to keep students organized while learning.
Picture books are a great way to boost student engagement.
I love watching my students faces light up when I read a book aloud to them. Their curious minds ask questions and make observations about the pictures, which turn into some interesting discussions among students. I use picture books as an interesting approach to some of our learning goals. Titles such as Cinderella was so Annoying and Red Riding Hood was Rotten provides an interesting, yet familiar approach to comparing two different texts. Books such as Ish, teach students important life lessons like it's ok to not be perfect, as long as you try your best.
My classroom needs these colorful picture books to engage students on their path to becoming a successful reader.
