My students need storytelling kits for some of our favorite Kindergarten stories, and felt storytelling lap boards in order to practice identifying story elements and practice the skill of retelling in a fun and creative way.
My classroom consists of 30 amazing students! Each student ready and anxious about beginning their learning life in our kindergarten classroom. Our students arrive each morning, coming from one of the toughest neighborhoods of Chicago, and pledge to be their best, work their hardest, and be brave in the face of the day's challenges.
Our classroom prides itself on being a place where students come to be explorers.
Students are encouraged to act with integrity and compassion and we stress the importance of being active citizens in a world that does not always treat our students with kindness. Our students are strong, creative, and highly energetic. They are ready to be the next generation of men and women running this country.
Students begin our read aloud time each day with excitement. What will we read about today? What story will come alive in our classroom? In Kindergarten, reading aloud plays such an important role in our students' early literacy skills that teachers love to find new and creative ways to keep our students engaged.
We are asking for storytelling kits and story boards for some of our most loved read alouds, shared reading texts, and emergent story books.
These kits will allow the students to relive their reading experiences as they practice retelling each story. This beginning literacy skill is one of the foundational skills necessary to create a life long reader.
