A Little Diversity and Motivation To Bridge the Gap

Help me give my students access to great diverse books and some incentives to help motivate them during our virtual learning time.

My Students

I work with a nice group of K-5 students that come from the neighboring urban area hoping to get a better education than their local public school offers. We are a small charter school that caters to the use of technology and arts in everyday lessons which came in handy when we switched to full time virtual school.

I teach an intensive reading to the students that are falling behind in reading.

My goal is to improve their reading skills and hopefully teach them to learn to love reading in the process. They work very hard in my class despite their challenges and backgrounds.

My Project

Your donations will give my students both access to new books with diverse characters and a little extra motivation that I can mail to them for encouragement during this time of distance learning. We spend most of the time working on specific reading deficiency skills and once a week we make time to read a story together.

These books will add some characters and stories to the classroom collection that will relate to my students that come from diverse backgrounds.

The little prizes will be incentives and surprises that I can mail to my students to give them a little something extra to look forward to. Who knows, they may even learn about snail mail. My main goal as a reading interventionist is to increase each student's reading skills, but I want to do as much as I can to make this both a fun enriching experience.
