I am a second year teacher teaching kindergarten for the first time. I currently do not have an adequate library for the children in my room. Reading big books has proven problematic as I do not have a big book easel to use during circle time. Also, my listening center is not being used as effectively as it could be because I don\'t have enough books on tape for them to listen to. The children read \"I Went Visiting\" in their reader and I thought it would be great for the children to follow up with the story, \"I Went Walking.\" A class set would be so effective so the children could read along in their very own book. Having the theme packet will provide them with some hands on experience.
