My Students

My students are full of excitement, wonder, and energy. I am the library media specialist and I work hard to get books into kids' hands. The library today is not like you picture- quiet and just reading. We do all kinds of things!

I teach at a school where we are proud to serve 550 students from diverse backgrounds.

For example, around 40 countries are represented. Our school is diverse in many ways, and all of these students deserve the very best.

My Project

These books look like regular picture books but they have audio narration, which enables students to read or follow along and listen independently. Our students need to be engaged with quality text as early as possible. These audio books will allow our students to engage in reading activities with less adult support. Students can check out these books from the library and listen to them as many times as they want. I have one of these books right now.

One student said, "I want to get this book every time and keep it forever; I read it like 10 times on the bus."


The voice reading these books models a fluent reader; it does not sound like a robot. These high-quality books will help our students develop the reading skills they need to succeed. Even our youngest students will be able to engage in listening activities while being read to which sets the stage for future development of reading skills. Children who participate in read-aloud activities build vocabulary, background knowledge, phonological awareness and letter and word recognition.
