We Love Books

My students need more good books with props and corresponding CDs. Our goal is to always encourage a love for books!

My Students

Please help us to continue to develop our love for books! My students love to listen to and look at good stories that include colorful pictures and props. They enjoy participating in hands-on storytime activities.

The wonderful students in room 9 are each unique and special.

They are in a Special Day Class for students with moderate to severe needs. At this time I have 13 special students. My students range from grades kindergarten to second grade. We have a few students in wheelchairs or other walking devices. Some students are verbal, while others are not. Some are visually impaired which is why having tactile props will be beneficial. All the students in room 9 are fantastic.

My Project

Although our students are faced with different challenges such as Downs Syndrome, Autism and other rare diseases, they inspire us and remind us that all children are capable of learning. My students benefit greatly from Storytime activities. My students' reading goals range from identifying the front/back cover of a book, to identifying the title, turning the pages, attending to a short story and identifying the character in a story. My students learn through a multisensory approach and benefit from listening to the story as well as seeing and touching puppets/props that correspond to the book. They all benefit from practice and repetition. I am requesting Classic Children's books with CD's. The books with CD's that I'm requesting are sing-alongs which provide the fun and engaging approach my students need. I am also requesting Storytelling Puppets which allow my students to be actively involved in storytime activities.

Please help us continue to teach our students and help them develop their love for books and reading.

I believe every child should have the opportunity to learn. My students and I would greatly appreciate your support to help us make learning fun.
