Mrs. Voci from Eddington ME is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ready to Read: The Books Are All We Need!

My students need more mentor texts to help them understand how reading and writing strategies work in books. Stories like Hey, Little Ant and Otis help them learn how to predict, make connections and infer.

My Students

This year I have a group of 15 hard-working, motivated first grade students. They enjoy starting each day with morning songs and meetings, spending the day learning new concepts, and ending each day with special handshakes!

My students thrive on positive feedback.

We use flexible seating in the classroom both at the tables and our group meeting spots. My students love having the ability to make successful choices on where they work. First grade is a year filled with reading growth and math facts. My goal is to have students enter the room excited for the day, ready to learn new things and leave wanting to know more!

My Project

Every week our students hear a new story that we center our learning on during our literacy block. These stories have relatable characters, great messages and allow students the opportunity to expand their reading strategies in the classroom. Our reading curriculum centers on teaching students how to make predictions, retell a story, make inferences, offer their opinions and much more.

Have you ever read a story that has made you or your audience laugh?

The mentor texts that we need in our class not only bring humor to our room, but also structure and consistency, helping students learn and grow their brains.
