My loving first graders have given me a renewed love of teaching. They come in everyday ready to learn and share their stories with me. It’s wonderful to hear how they are growing and becoming more eager to learn. They are so happy to be in school and I want that love to grow. With the right tools and guidance I can see them coming back year after year to give me a hug and tell me something that is going on in their life.
Just imagine a small child being able to literally get into the book. Using big books in our classroom will help students as a whole group engage in the story and then students will use these books in centers to reinforce language, writing and speaking. Let’s be honest, BIG BOOKS are just fun and all ages want to read them and experience a favorite story. The set of big books will help build confidence in their reading skills after hearing the story multiple times in class. My students will be able look for words that are used most often in reading, practice fluency and be able to retell the story in centers.
