My Students

Do you ever remember as a young child just sitting in your room or your house reading one of your favorite books over and over again? Do you remember that feeling when you could picture yourself in that book as your favorite character? That is what I want for my classroom of first graders! I want them to be able to step out of the real world and into their imaginations.

My first graders are also at a crucial age where early reading skills are developing rapidly everyday.

I want them to enjoy reading as well as learn the foundational skills they will need for years to come.

My Project

I want to be able to give my students more resources to help them establish a love for reading. By providing personal CD players and audiobooks to my reading center, students will be able to listen to books that will be able to take their imagination where ever they want to go. By providing my students with these materials, they will be able to learn some early literacy skills such as following along as they read, recalling events from the story, questioning skills, making text to self connections and so many more skills.
