Mrs. White from Georgetown DE is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Empowering Struggling Readers to Succeed and Be Good Leaders!

Help me give my students reading prizes for them to earn. This encourages and challenges them to push themselves to always be improving their reading skills. They need bookmarks, erasers and rubber bracelets.

My Students

My students are simply wonderful! Between myself and the 2 other Elementary Interventionist we may see up to 125 students that struggle to read. Last year my group was made up of 41 English Language Learners, 2 students with IEPs (Individualized Education Program) goals and 1 student in the gifted and talented program.

More than three-quarters of my students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.

In our building, 63% are of Hispanic descent and most are bilingual, 14% are African American, 22% are White Americans, and less than 1% are Asian. About 87% qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program. One hundred percent of them are hard workers who believe in the growth mindset. They are very special students.

My Project

The materials I am requesting, for our Kinder through 5th grade students, will be used as reading incentives and prizes. Our focus is to conference with our students to set up 7 week goals and give children an incentive to preserver through challenging readings.

These incentives will successfully keep students motivated to achieve their weekly and monthly reading goals.

Along with offering a little motivations or rewards, we plan on having our students become a part of the process of creating a positive reading environment. The students will also earn an extra incentives that they will be expected to reward to a classmate that they believe is showing "GRIT". GRIT is defined as "perseverance and passion for long-term goals.

So in-turn they will not only be working towards be a better reader, receiving a small bookmark but also the opportunity to highlight a deserving classmate.

Thank you for considering giving our students this opportunity.
