My Students

My pre-k students are four and five-year-olds who come from high poverty or English as second language homes. This year, my students are all learning virtually from home.

For most of my students, my classroom is their first school experience and they come with such an excitement for learning and trying new things, like working with puzzles, listening to a book, or painting.

I am privileged to watch them grow and develop skills in such a hands-on environment.

My Project

Having engaging read alouds with my pre-k students can be challenging since I am a virtual teacher this year. Having books with bright illustrations and photographs will help keep their focus. After reading the books about shapes, I can give my students a variety of paper shapes to use in creating their own picture and design, which is a hands on way to reinforce the concepts and their creativity.

Many of these books emphasize the concepts of kindness, inclusion of others, and show diverse characters which is so crucial to promote in read alouds.

These books are also packed with rhyming words and examples of alliteration which are important for my students to hear on a regular basis.
