My school is comprised of 100% military children. My students' parents are often on long deployments, but the students find comfort in that many of their classmates have also faced similar circumstances. The students find support in each other and in our school environment. The community that makes up our school is very close knit and very unique.
Since the students at my school are all military children, my classroom is comprise of students from all over the country and world.
The students find common ground with their unique lifestyle of being a military child.
Having this set of picture books within my classroom will allow my students to be introduced to a wide variety of beautiful picture books and stories. The picture books will allow me to introduce literacy skills and science concepts through the use of engaging and thought provoking read aloud books.
These picture books will also encourage discussion among my students on a wide variety of topics.
Not only will the students be discussing the theme behind each story, they will also be using learned literacy skills while they read. In addition, many of the books can be used to discuss cross-curricula topics in science and social studies.
The requested books will enhance the classroom setting, making it an engaging place to learn about first grade literacy skills.
