Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach remedial reading to first graders. I received my certification in Reading Recovery in 1993. Through that extensive training program I became enlightened as to the necessity of engaging beginning students in authentic reading situations daily. As part of their daily lesson my students have a new book introduced to them by me each day. I serve four students individually (the neediest) and four groups of four children. The little books are unbelievably costly but integral to effective lessons. The students take the books home daily to practice reading to parents. The program in our school has now grown to include 6 reading teachers who must share the trade-book collection. My teaching is hindered when I cannot meet my students need to read exciting and motivating appropriately leveled text. I volunteer my time during the summer months to continue lessons with my students who remain below grade-level at year-end. These students especially need exciting new books to read. I am committed to helping each of my students reach grade-level by the end of first grade. Research shows that students who leave first grade on grade level remain at or above throughout elementary school. I need quality materials for my students and I to enjoy together in order that I can instill in each child an appreciation for reading. Please help me to create readers for life!
