When I tell people that I am a kindergarten teacher, their response is, "I don't know how you do it." I love the uniqueness of each one of my students, the energy they bring to each day and just never knowing what they're going to say and what to expect in some cases. I was asked to describe a day in kindergarten, and I would say that it's, "beautiful chaos." I love their desire to learn and that they soak up all the information like little sponges and wait anxiously for more. I love their forgiving spirit when they are redirected to undesired behaviors.
This collection of books will enhance our classroom library by giving the students a variety of books to read that are of interest to them. Initially, my students dreaded reading time, but through continued exposure to reading and my enthusiasm when expressing the importance of reading, my students' love for reading has flourished. My students now enjoy reading time whether it's shared reading, choral reading, buddy reading, or independent reading.
My students will be able to choose books which will help them continue to enjoy reading and the only way to increase reading ability and fluency is to read daily.
The TOON Graphics Set will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. This project will only help enhance their experiences with reading.
