Bridging the Gap Between School and Home

My students need take home literacy bags to provide additional academic support at home.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Do you remember the first time you were "reading" a book and you were able to actually READ it? When my students experience this the stars in their eye light up my day! I would love to give them additional at home opportunities to enhance this experience.

I teach kindergarten in a district currently has a half day program, so I teach 2 classes of 20 children.

Though we are a large district monies are limited and needed to purchase basic classroom supplies, so the classroom "extras" are usually purchased by the teacher.

My Project

My children love the Take-Home bags that I currently have. Since the bags and materials are very pricey, I am very limited to the bags that I can purchase or create each year. The parents enjoy the special "reading" time that they get to spend with their child, while helping the increase their sight word knowledge as well as their love of literature.

Helping us to purchase additional Take-Home bags will provide additional academic support at home, increase the child's love of learning, and provide fun and exciting activities for the child and the parent to experience together.

I hope you can support our project!
