My Students

My students walk into our classroom everyday full of life and excited to see what they will be doing for the day. They are very eager and ready to learn. The children enjoy hands- on activities that show them how the world around them works.

They love to explore books and love story time!

They request stories read to them each and everyday. They love to act out our stories and explore the props I have available for them. My students come from low income families and don't have many books in their homes.

My Project

Starting children with a love of reading at an early age is an essential part of their future education. My children love to have books read to them and then re-tell the story using props. By providing my children with new books and storytelling props they will be able to understand that the text is meaningful and can be read. My project objective for language and literacy is to help my children develop a love for reading at a young age. This will help to develop language skills to encourage success in their future education.

The new books and story telling props will allow the children to explore and go on adventures.

The books and authors I have chosen will help develop and enhance their language skills. The storytelling kits will help my children bring the stories alive.
