Some Good Books

Help me give my students engaging stories that I can read to them while we're apart so they can develop their social and emotional skills.

My Students

The soft closure of schools seven weeks ago created problems for teachers and students. With the closure extending for 4 more weeks, rather than throw in the towel with learning, I'm hoping that all the success we achieved this year won't be lost as we wrap up the school year.

I am a kindergarten teacher and I'm trying to teach from my living room.

It's not ideal for any grade, but especially kindergarten. I need tactile objects to help engage my students and continue to offer enriching teaching.

I've tried to connect with my students online and offer them ways to know that while we're no longer in our traditional classroom, we're still a class community and we're still together.

My Project

While the last seven weeks have been challenging, I want to support my students during the remainder of the school year with online check ins. I want to read touching stories to my students that teach social and emotional skills that can help them be their best selves during this trying time.

I've requested supplies that can help me transform my living room into a classroom where we can have discussions and continue engaging in meaningful learning.

I am asking for books about social and emotional skills that we can discuss as a class. I will read these engaging stories to my students while we're apart. Then we will use the easel pad and markers to capture our thoughts as we discuss the concepts and characters in the books.

I'm limited at home and have discovered many difficulties as I try to teach online. I am asking for the Phonics From A to Z so I can also use our class book discussions to teach about reading.
