Early Literacy Skills

Help me give my students with their early literacy skills. Kindergarten students need manipulatives and colored books to get engaged and have fun developing their early literacy skills.

My Students

Our school provides the environment that fosters what each student needs to become biliterate, multicultural, and to acquire the skills and attributes needed to effectively serve in our local and global community. We welcome students of all backgrounds and ethnicities. We value a diverse school community. Most of our students are Hispanic and our goal is to close the achievement gap, so that our students can succeed academically. In our school we value diversity and promote different culture perspectives, to ensure that students learn about different places of the world.

My Project

Our elementary school is focusing on the lower grades to help them increase their early literacy skills. We know the importance of the reading foundation that students obtain in their early years of school. Students are more excited to learn to read with manipulatives and colored books. This project will benefit all 90 kindergarten students because our classes rotate and the materials will be used with all three classes. Some materials will also be used as tier two interventions to help struggling students get caught up. Thank you very much for your support. We truly appreciate donors that are willing to help make a difference in children's lives.
