My students need quality Shared Reading books to inspire them to love reading. Students love to listen and read the sing song text of author Joy Cowley. Bob books and Leap Frog will foster independent readers.
Our school family is made up of some amazing and dynamic Kindergartners. Our school is located in a high poverty community where home resources are limited. Most of each scholars daily needs must be met through school. In our classroom we know reading is MAGICAL and the key to success. Students light up when they begin to see themselves as readers. They cheer for each other and celebrate mastery of letters, sounds, words and text. Literacy will be key to helping these students break the cycle of poverty and a strong building block of reading instruction is the cornerstone to this.
Our school is a community school set in a socioeconomically impoverished neighborhood. When they come to my classroom I know the best chance I can give them to break the cycle of poverty is to give them the gift of literacy. Shared readings in Kindergarten must be magical, exciting and filled with strategies to help them become strong and resilient readers.
This project includes 11 big books by author Joy Cowley because her repetition and rhyme are enticing.
I know these books will be key to wonderful morning reading circles. They will be used to teach strategies and also to be used as an innovative writing tool each week. I am also asking for a series of Bob books as they help beginning readers start to make the transition from repetition to blending sounds.
Finally, I am asking for a Leap Frog bundle. This set is a fun way to help students begin reading independently. These materials are going to be key in making our literacy block fun and exciting. When my scholars have strategies to read, they have strategies to succeed!
