Reading for Early Readers and English Language Learners

I need these early ready books to conduct a reading workshop, so our kindergarten students can acquire a second language acquisition using emergent reading books.

My Students

My students are great learners. In my classroom, we don’t just learn the conventional way. I try to create an atmosphere of intrigue along with critical thinking. “ Let’s write about planets.” Not in my class. We dig deeper into the subject.

"What are planets, why are they there, let’s create our own planet, let’s give it a name, give factual data relating to how close it is to the sun", etc.

I would like to conduct a reading workshop with our kindergarten teachers. My goal is to demonstrate reading emergent/early ready books with primary students so their teachers can continue reading emergent/early ready books to their students. In order to accomplish these tasks, we need early reader books. Not just any early reader books, but HIGH-INTEREST books.

My Project

My goal within this project is to equip our kindergarten teachers with early readers. I need to conduct how to use appropriate titles and books for ELL students. After training those teachers, each will receive a set of early readers and use them with their ENGLISH Language Learners and additional students. Students will be encouraged to model stories, find details, identify main characters, know the 5W’s of reading. These skills reflect what students need to achieve using our Common Core Curriculum, along with District outlined curriculums. Teachers will be required to produce Exit Tickets, that would allow our administration a brief summary of what they learned.
