Sharing Reading With a Friend

My students need story kits to help them practice retelling stories with partners and build critical reading comprehension skills.

My Students

Every day with my students is an adventure. They are loving, thankful, and resilient in a way that other students in different situations are not. When my students come to my class, many of them are behind in reading and vocabulary and have had few experiences with books. Our school is working to incorporate more technology in each classroom to allow individual students more time interacting with technology. The students at our school come from environments where they have little to no technology at home. School is a place for them to explore technology and literature that they would not normally have the chance to explore. My students amaze me every day with their ability to overcome the obstacles in their paths. I enjoy being able to provide them with items and experiences they would not normally get to have.

My Project

Reading a book is a wonderful experience to share with friends! We all enjoy sharing the joy of reading with others and these reading kits will allow my students to retell quality texts that we read as a group. They love having the opportunity to use hands-on materials to experience the stories first hand. The story kits help bring the stories to life and assist them in the critical reading comprehension skill of retelling a text. I teach my children to love reading and to enjoy sharing the experience with others. These story kits will be an activity for my students to complete during their Read with a Buddy time after we have read the book all together as a class. It will be a great hands-on activity to engage students in authentic reading activities.
