"I do not have any books at home!" exclaimed one of my students in the first week of school. This perhaps would have shocked me, except as a new teacher, I also did not have a reading textbook and a limited number of novels to teach the students. My students already have limited resources due to the low-income area in which they live. However, throughout the weeks I have spent with them, I have learned they love to read. Due to their lack of opportunities, my students use reading as a way to connect with characters and travel to a different time and place. It gives them opportunities to see the world and experience opportunities they otherwise would not get. My students' reading ability ranges from 2nd - 5th grade. The guided reading sets will allow me to reach each student at their level. While the novels will allow them to join book clubs and collaborate with one another. On behalf of myself and my students, we appreciate your interest in funding our project.
