Centered on Literacy

My students need books and literacy learning centers to practice literacy skills.

My Students

Engaging stories and games to extend the experience will help students improve their literacy and communication skills.

This is a large neighborhood school.

There are five classes for each grade level. I teach Kindergarten to third grade students in the library. Half of our students are Chinese and about a quarter are Latino/a, so English is a second language for many of the students. All children love to play while learning.

My Project

Listening to a teacher reading a great story like Sheep in a Jeep creates an interest in words and how they are constructed. The literacy centers allow them to then play and practice important literacy skills like rhyming and sequencing. Giving children the opportunity to explore at their own pace allows all to improve their skills while keeping a positive feeling towards reading and learning.

You can help my students learn to read better by providing these literacy centers.

At this age, learning comes best by play. The books and centers provide an opportunity for the students to try out different skills and interact with their classmates.
