1st Graders Love to Read

My students need books that they can listen to. This will help their listening comprehension and fluency.

My Students

Fluency is a difficult thing. It is hard for students to be fluent and comprehend what they are reading. A center with books for students to read and listen to will help their fluency.

My students are in 1st Grade and are learning to read.

They are at the stage where reading is fun. I want to capture their interest in reading. I want my students to become fluent in their reading. They are eager to read. By having a fluency/listening center, my students will be able to increase their excitement and love for reading. They will be able to become more fluent, while understanding what they are reading.

My Project

Students need to gain an increase in fluency. It is hard for students to become fluent and understand the text. When they are too slow or too fast it becomes hard to understand what they are reading. I am going to have a center where my students will practice their fluency. They will do this by listening to stories as well as reading passages to a partner. They will be timed for 1 min. They will practice this to increase fluency. Students in 1st Grade need to be able to comprehend and read 60 words/min. Having the resources and books will help my students increase their fluency.

Your help will ensure that my students will be given the opportunity to increase their fluency and reading skills and enjoy reading books they love!

Your donation will help provide my students with a variety of books to read and increase their reading/fluency skills.
