My Kindergarten class consists of 18 students who come in each morning eager to learn and do their absolute best.
I teach in a Title I school, located in a city booming with diversity.
My students come from a wide range of backgrounds, speak a variety of languages, and have huge imaginations!
Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method in which they learn best varies greatly. I make it my goal to incorporate a variety of learning strategies and opportunities to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are and I love watching them beam with excitement and confidence when they are successful.
The only thing better than hearing your teacher read a story book aloud is when she reads a book aloud and the illustrations are so big you feel like you are in the story! This year we do not have a cozy carpet to gather close and listen to stories, so these big books will help every child be able to see the words and illustrations.
Big books for shared reading and read-alouds are a crucial part of any kindergarten classroom, and the books we are requesting will make perfect literature additions to our curriculum.
We read Chrysanthemum in September when we are learning one another's names and how we are each special. We read 5 Little Monkeys when we begin learning about subtraction. We read The Gingerbread Boy to retell the characters, setting, and events of a story. I know these big books will become instant class favorites.
