My students are creative, thoughtful, and full of questions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!
Reading aloud to students encourages them to think critically, fosters a sense of community, and makes learning fun.
Research shows that read alouds support all areas of literacy development by exposing students to new words, while increasing interest in reading and writing. I chose several writer's workshop mentor texts, social emotional learning texts, and classic stories that my students will be easily engaged with. These books will be paired with matching read aloud activities that integrate all subject areas and make learning fun.
