Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach Kindergarten in a school with 650 students and our free and reduced lunches are 69%. We have a high population of E.S.L. students. This year I have 8 students in my classroom who have a language other than English spoken in their homes. I would like to purchase some big books to supplement my literacy, social studies and math curriculum. These books would provide some rich literature for students who need extra support with the English language. It would provide great illustrations to help demonstrate the subjects I am teaching in the classroom. It would also promote enjoyment for literature. I believe one of the greatest gifts I can give to children is the "joy of reading." Please consider funding this proposal because without your help the budget will not allow "big books." These big books will be used for many years and will be used in all areas of the curriculum.
