Mrs. Tobiasz from Springfield MA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books Make You Bright!

Help me give my students books to read, phonics activities and puzzles at their level. All of the students I service are below level in Reading. They need materials to use so they can feel successful.

My Students

My students are beautiful, kind, and loving children. They come from a large urban school district where 95% of them receive a free or reduced lunch.

My students come from all over the globe, including Somalia, Puerto Rico, South America and Africa.

My students love coming to school and they love to learn. They love having new experiences and participating in engaging and interesting lessons and activities. With your help, we can provide them with what they need to be successful learners.

My Project

I am requesting many Early literacy materials for an Intervention classroom. My students are reading approximately 2-3 years below grade level. This hinders their overall success.

Students come to the room to improve their reading, fluency, comprehension, spelling, writing and phonics skills.

The flip books, emergent readers and word family readers will aid the students immensely. They will benefit from all these materials. They will receive explicit reading instruction. Not only will these materials increase their love of reading but they will also increase their reading level. Then, they will feel a sense of success in their academic learning.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!!!
