My Students

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." -Dr. Seuss

The reading levels in my classroom range from emergent reading to middle-of-the-year 2nd grade reading.

What they all share in common is their genuine love for reading and excitement as they conquer newly learned reading skills. As their kindergarten teacher, I must nurture this love and excitement of reading.

My Project

No matter the reading level, all readers benefit from listening and reading along to books-on-CDs. This helps students with the reading skill of fluency--reading with speed, accuracy, and proper expression. Students will also be able to hear character voices, background music, and sound effects to make the stories seem to come alive!

All my kindergarteners will gain reading skills and experience reading new books in a fun way.

Obtaining these materials will help my young readers with their reading fluency and expression.
