My first graders are very excited to learn how to read this year! I looped with this group of kids from kindergarten to first grade and their enthusiasm to read books is inspiring! Magic tree house books have become their new favorite. They love the mysteries and adventures of Jack and Annie. They are enjoying being read to!
These students use their imagination and discuss ideas of how they would handle meeting a Knight or travel to Egypt just like Jack and Annie.
They are just starting to realize that books can take them any where they want to go.
When given free time in the classroom almost all the students choose to pick up a new book and start to read. It is fun to even see them buddy read and make up new games on the playground that involve the stories they just read. They are so hungry to learn.
My students need more practice to read. Bob books will help my students who are still learning to blend and the chapter books like Stink or Disney faeries will keep my students excited about reading They will increase their imagination with how each book takes them on a new adventure.
Reading is something these students need to be passionate about.
Most do not have the opportunity to seek out books outside of our school. By gaining a larger variety of books in my classroom they will be able to read more in class.
