Do you remember being read to as a child? Research shows, students who are read to every day develop stronger phonological awareness skills. In an urban setting, it is important for students to see multicultural characters they can connect to.
Hearing stories inspires our imagination.
The students in my class are hard working first graders that love to dive into stories. They are thinkers, inquirers, and problem solvers. With this project, my goal is to help enrich my students learning experiences through read aloud texts.
The materials I chose for my project will be used as read aloud stories for first grade students in an urban classroom setting. These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My students love to see multicultural characters that they can relate to.
With these new books, students will be able to make text to self connections and explore the world around us.
Storytime is always engaging. It also increases students reading ability and will help them to develop a love for reading. Storytime is when we discuss and make connections to the stories we hear.
