Dreams Come True with Reading!

My Students

My favorite Dr. Seuss quote states, "The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn the more places you will go." Exposing my students to different types of literature at a young age, increases their knowledge and love for reading and learning.

My students are 5 and 6 years old and LOVE learning.

The sky is the limit for my students, as they have vivid imaginations. At the beginning of the year, many of my students are only able to recognize a few letters and sounds. However, my goal is to have fluent readers by the end of kindergarten. Using various types of literature keeps my students engaged and wanting to learn more. Our school often has great incentives to motivate our students to read. My school is a Title I school, in which at least 50% of the students receive free or reduced priced lunch. This is why your assistance would be so valuable.

My Project

Scholastic Readers will give my students great exposure to nonfiction texts. They also provide real world examples and fascinating articles that connect with many of the science and social studies standards taught in the classroom. Students will be able to become authors as they create their own books using information they've learned. Students will also be able to participate in science experiments and projects that coincide with the topics being covered in the magazine readers and in the classroom.

Archaeologist, Botanist, Entomologist, Dentist, Doctor...all at the age of five!

The possibilities are endless with reading. The Scholastic Readers open the door to the world around them. My students love for reading will continue to grow as they enjoy learning about the past, the present and as they build their future!
