Learning to Read in PreK!

My students need 20 children's books and read along CDs, a puppet theater, a Create-A-Scene Felt Board Series and book bins to have for the reading center in the classroom.

My Students

Do you remember what it was like the first time you held a book? My students are just now beginning to have an interest in stories and have not had the opportunity to discover or hear the incredible adventures that books bring to young minds.

The children in my preschool class are from a small rural farming community in Kentucky.

The school has very little diversity and the classes are limited in materials. They have not had the opportunity to work with age appropriate materials and are eager to learn and explore the world they live in.

My Project

These resources will change my students lives because it will help introduce them to literature. Families can not afford to buy books for home and most children have not had the opportunity to read. These books will provide that. Each week, the children will be able to choose one book to take home to share with their family, and then return it on Monday. These books will also give the children a variety of stories to read during center time as well as stories that go along with the curriculum during circle time. The books will be used daily throughout the year. Reading is a big deal in preschool, which is why it is so important to provide them with books everywhere in the classroom. It helps children learn how to imagine great things, enabling them to create even greater things throughout their lives.

The materials in this project will change these children's lives forever.

Being introduced to books at an early age will create their future. When these children take a book home each week, the parents will begin to understand the importance of literature as well. This will create family time, as well as children learning the childhood stories they can grow up and tell their children. This project will impact my classroom, the children, and their families.
