Help me give my students the gift of reading! My students really LOVE to read! These fun, engaging characters are particularly accessible to first graders, who are just learning to read.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My first graders are a diverse group of students who love learning! They enter the room each day with an enthusiasm and energy that constantly remind me why I love what I do.
My students come from many different cultures, and speak many different languages.
It is beautiful to watch children communicate and make friends even when they may not speak the same language-- somehow, they find a way!
As a Title I school, we know that many of our students and families struggle financially; at our school, we do our best to make sure that our students and families are supported in every way possible so that every child can reach his or her full potential.
My first graders really LOVE to read! These fun, engaging characters practically leap off the pages, begging young readers to bring them to life by acting out their stories! This, in turn, leads to improved fluency in reading, along with a sheer joy for reading! There is nothing more exciting than walking into a first grade classroom and hearing the squeals of joy as they act out a grumpy Gerald (Elephant) or an excited Piggie! Displaying these wonderful books in this child- accessible shelf will surely grab even the most reluctant reader's attention. Please help my young beginning readers succeed!
