Help me give my students books that they can take home to read with their parents and to build a home library. This will reinforce their learning at school and help parents extend literacy practices at home.
I have 24 curious, bright, energetic, and hilarious 3 year-old students in the special education inclusion program that I teach.
I am fortunate to be able to implement a literature-rich curriculum that supports language, cognitive, physical, and social development.
I love watching students become immersed in a piece of classic children's literature and read it over and over!
Half of my students have been identified with a disability, and half are typically developing. Consequently, there is a wide range of academic and social abilities in my class and everybody is learning at his or her individual level. I truly believe that all of my students benefit from the make-up of the classroom. My students with disabilities have the chance to learn alongside their non-disabled peers, who act as social and language models. My typically developing students have the opportunity to learn empathy and kindness, and take on leadership roles in the classroom. My school serves almost exclusively low-income families and serves children in grades pre-k 3 through fifth.
I am implementing a curriculum called Read It Once Again, an early childhood curriculum that reinforces reading comprehension and language development by focusing on one piece of children's literature per month. By the end of the month, my students and I will have read each book so many times that they should have it memorized! This repetition is particularly important for my students with language delays. What better way to share the learning at home than to send home a copy of the book at the end of each month. My 3 year-old students will be able to read the book to their parents!
I have the opportunity to purchase a year's worth of curriculum books at a discounted price through Scholastic Literacy Partners so that I can share each wonderful book with my students' parents and build their home library.
This project will benefit my children by establishing a strong home-school connection and foster the love of reading at home.
