Through this semester I have read a variety of books. I have read a total of 105 books with categories such as award winners, multicultural, and picture books. I have read a total of: 7 biographies, 5 award winners, 5 disability, 65 easy books, 10 fantasy, 3 multicultural, 10 novel, 4 science, 3 social studies. As I look at my database, I notice that most of the books I chose were easy books. I am going to be certified as a K-3 educator, so it is good that I chose easy books, but I should have looked for a bigger diversity than what I did.
Through reading all of these books, I learned there are stories for everything. You can teach a child different subjects such as art, science, math, social studies, and more just through reading a children’s book. When I began choosing books, I just picked them off the shelf by their looks or if I knew the author such as Eric Carle or Dr. Seuss. But through learning in this classroom, there is a way you can search on the computer for specific books. Over the course of this semester, my process for choosing books changed because I didn’t just pull books off the shelf, I searched for what I was looking for. The best genre I read was fantasy. I always loved the folklore books when I was growing up because it always relayed a good message. I absolutely loved the novel Totally Joe because it directly relates to real life. There are children out there who go through some horrible time because they feel they cannot be who they truly are because they will be bullied and judged, and there needs to be more people out there who just don’t care about what people think and just be who you truly are. My favorite authors are still Dr. Seuss and Eric Carle. I love Dr. Seuss’s rhyme in his stories and Eric Carle’s illustrations are so unique, I love looking at his pictures. I do not have any children of my own and my niece lives far away so I wasn’t able to read to any relatives of mine. But when I read to the kindergarten classroom for this class assignment I enjoyed it so much.
