My Students

"Listen, do you want to hear a secret" was a song I heard growing up. The secret I want my students to learn is the love of reading. My students come in with little to no exposure to books. These exciting materials will help a child learn and love to read. Help me share the secret of reading.

I teach at a Title 1 school where many families do not have the means to expose their children to reading materials at home.

Whether it is a single mom or a culture barrier, families struggle to provide. I want to step in the gap and expose these students to books and different technology.

My Project

My students will use these materials in our new listening center. We had an old tape player in our listening center, but we recently acquired a CD player. We need new books on CD to go with our station. Students write about these books and become independent workers and readers. The storytelling kit will be a fun, interactive way to retell stories and engage the students in the stories.

It is my hope that these materials will spark an excitement for reading and reinforce basic phonic skills.

The student read along books will allow students to read with a CD and the listen and learn center will help my kindergarten students to practice their phonic skills.
