Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a fifth grade teacher in an elementary school in Brooklyn, New York. The school in which I teach has a high population of English Language Learners and it is located in a low socio-economic neighborhood. Ninety percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch daily. This year I will have 34 fifth grade students in my class. Although all of my students are considered English language learners, I will have ten students who are pulled out for ESL services. This is where they will receive language instruction in a small group setting. The materials that we need to help boost comprehension and fluency are nothing more than BOOKS! Books by the same author and books in a series. These types of books are predictable and the children get to know the characters well. By knowing the characters and plot across these books, I can work with small groups using guided reading and conferring with individual children while teaching them different strategies and skills that they can use to bring up their reading levels and fluency. This boosts confidence and makes them read more and more wanting that feeling of success!! These books are crucial to the needs of not only English language learners but ALL learners. These books can be used over and over for all types of reading strategies, author studies, and for the children to use during writer's workshop as well. The books will be available to the children all year round for reading with a purpose and for enjoyment. The sky's the limit. We will be truly grateful if you would take our proposal into consideration!!!
