Literacy in first grade is crucial to the success that students will encounter with their future learning. Establishing a secure foundation of reading skills & strategies, as well as developing a genuine love for reading is one of the most important tasks that educators must master. I am asking for support to obtain a set of 55 leveled readers for first grade students to access during our reading and intervention times, in order to practice strategies, as well as to develop fluency and expression while reading. Our classroom library needs to be updated to include books that are fun to read and are good fit books for first graders. Most of the time students are reading stories that have been reconstructed through stapling and taping or are black and white copied stories. I want to give my first grade students the opportunity to have new books that include colorful illustrations and encompass different interests and topics. Students learn best when they are immersed in the learning process and given hands on experiences to practice concepts taught in class. The 55 first grade leveled reader set would ensure that my students are given the opportunity to embrace a love for literacy and help them to learn, achieve, and succeed. Thank you for your time and consideration for our project: Laugh! Learn! Love to Read! Literacy in First Grade!
