Relevant Read Alouds

My students need relevant picture books that will support their social emotional development while also teaching them about social issues and life in the past.

My Students

Our class is a group of kind hearted, hard working 1st graders. Our class is of diverse backgrounds, including English language Learners and students with special needs. Three questions that guide classroom behavior are : "Is it safe? Is it respectful? Is it respectful to other people?" These questions have helped the children make good choices that keep them focused and self-aware of their own actions.

The students are very eager to learn and "grow their brains." One way we help our children grow social emotionally is by doing read alouds- their favorite time of the day.

The kids love listening to stories and are actively engaged throughout a read aloud.

My Project

These books will be used for interactive read alouds, where children are exposed to new ideas and experiences that they an empathize with. Not all of our children have access to picture books at home, and many are not yet able to read these language-rich books on their own.

These read alouds will be a great way for students to develop socially and emotionally, while also learning about important social issues like segregation and gender norms.

Every week we will be reading one of these books and children will be asked to share their noticings and feelings as they read. They'll use critical thinking skills to reflect on the character's experiences and connect them to their own.
