Mrs. Jowkar from Hickory CRNRS MI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Please Read to ME!

My students need a listening library with multiple books that match the CD so that they can work in small cooperative groups.

My Students

My first graders are very excited and eager to learn every single day! They are so full of imagination, motivation, and love. First grade is when we truly build our love for books and grow so much as readers.

Reading is their absolute favorite time of the day!

They love being able to practice skills that we are learning, and reading to discover new things. The smiles and excitement that they display as we are learning new things lights my heart on fire. They are incredible students who deserve so much!

My Project

Reading aloud is one of the most important things teachers can do with children. Reading aloud builds many important foundational skills, introduces vocabulary, provides a model of fluent, expressive reading, and helps children recognize what reading for pleasure is all about.

The students will be listening to books on CD in small cooperative groups and working on their literacy skills which are very important in 1st grade.

Students love this independent activity that boosts self-esteem and confidence.

As a teacher I would love to have time to read aloud to my students all day long; unfortunately, there is just not enough time in the day to do this. Luckily, this project will help my students hear more read a loud stories every day!
