My students need both fiction and non-fiction books that support their reading levels and will inspire a love of reading.
If I had to pick one word to describe my students, it would be ENTHUSIASTIC! In kindergarten there is a love for learning that is unlike any other grade level because everything is new for them. For most of my students, this is their first classroom and learning experience.
Our 24 students come from bilingual (and some trilingual) homes and many are just beginning to learn the English language.
At the beginning of kindergarten, we learn all about the letters and the sounds they make, which eventually helps us to learn how to read basic words by the end of the year. My class has a strong love for math and loves to count anything they see. We are working hard to develop a strong number sense.
Right now our classroom library consists of books that have been donated or passed on from retiring teachers. While many of the books are great stories, they do not support our beginning kindergarten readers. For some of my students, the classroom is the only place where they have the chance to read books. I would love for my students to have a selection of books that is exciting as well as appropriate for their reading levels.
With your support, my students will have access to appropriate grade level readers.
I want our library to be a place where students develop a love for reading and feel confident in their reading abilities. By having the students choose their books they are developing ownership of their reading and can pursue their own interests. I am excited to watch these young readers grow into lifelong learners!
