I am looking forward to meeting all 18 new students this school year. The students i teach come from diverse social background. More than three-quarters of the students come from low-income households.
Working together and collaborating are skills my students need for success in their future.
I hope that being in my classroom empowers these students to make a difference.
It will be my responsibility to enhance these students learning this year with quality materials to better prepare them for kindergarten.
Listening skills are important in life. With Single Read Aloud stories I could help my students increase their listening skills, build confidence and increase literacy skills. Hearing a book read on CD will help my students see how words on a page come alive in a fluid, expressive way.
Each school day students will have the opportunity to increase their listening and reading skills during their free choice learning centers.
Books on CD helps them focus on the sounds of words read without interruption and provides a model of fluent reading. Audio books also give them an important introduction to listening—a skill that they must master in order to learn to read.
