Achieving Reading Success

My students need a comprehension project center and vocabulary practice cards.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I currently teach a third grade class with 15 students in a high poverty school. All my students need a little extra push to be totally successful this year.

I am pulling out all the stops as we prepare for End of Grade Test. My students need a lot of extra support as we approach that date.

I believe the comprehension project center and vocabulary practice cards I am asking for will be fun and engaging as I seek to improve my students reading comprehension skills. The vocabulary and comprehension practice provided by these materials will be a big boost for my students.

You will make a huge difference in my students lives as you partner with me to ensure their success in reading.
