My Students

My students love to curl up on the carpet with me to enjoy a good book. As emerging readers, my students need to see books with large print, so everyone can see. With the large print we can practice our decoding skills, and everyone is able to see the pictures at the same time.

My students attend a K-5 elementary school with approximately 275 students.

Our school has a free and reduced lunch population of around 75%. I am so fortunate to work with the most amazing kindergarten students. They love coming to school every day and truly enjoy learning how to read. We presently have 26 students in our class, and each one is excited about learning how to read.

My Project

For my students, I am requesting sets of big books. The big books are larger sized versions of favorite stories. I will be able to read the books with the students, and everyone will be able to see each word and the pictures. Using pointers and specially made tape, students can point out words they are able to read to share with others. In addition to the big books, I am requesting a series of big books focusing on colors. Each book is specific to a color. It will help in teaching students their colors and color words. Finally, I am requesting a big book storage container so the big books will be able to be kept in good condition, and students will easily be able to access them to read independently.

I LOVE teaching my students how to read.

What an amazing job I have! It is my job not only to teach them how to read, but to provide them with the needed materials for direct instruction and independent practice. With your help, I will be able to provide quality literature for them to read.
