I am a kindergarten teacher at Browns Valley Elementary School in Napa, California. I joyfully teach twenty motivated five-year-old students each day. I work at an amazing, well-staffed school that promotes creativity, personal growth, academic success, and character education. I am requesting a variety of story book characters to supplement the stories we read in my classroom. Kindergartners love to be read to, enjoy pretend reading, and especially love to play act and pretend. The puppets I am requesting will stimulate each child's imagination. In addition, play acting with them will encourage cooperative play and a meaningful reading connection. It will also develop story retelling skills. My classroom walls are covered with characters from the stories we regularly read. This visual display, along with the children's work, is a reminder of the tremendous joy gained from the ability to read, write, and create! Early exposure to strong, exciting literacy experiences will lead to a lifelong love of reading.
