"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." - Dr. Seuss
Can you image life without books? Well, I hate to admit this, but many of the students in my classroom, don't have books at home.
Creating the desire to read independently is what we have been working on all year!
We have written a project for a printer where we are able to print some books from the web, but imagine being able to have your OWN book! Each student would love to have a book to take home so they can read and fully understand what they are reading. They love to come back to class and let us know what they have read!
Our school is comprised of several races and ethnicities. We have over 50% free and reduced lunch and are considered "low income." We work very hard to request materials that our students need and they really need books they are able to take home!
My students will use the Favorite Series Samplers and other high interest books, not only read in class, but to read at home. One of the many reading strategies that we use is to read the book several times. First, we read it independently, then we read it out loud to an adult or friend, and finally we read it as a group. This helps to build the comprehension skills that are very important for my students. The books will not only help my students now, but they will help my students in the future. We'll add them to our small classroom library and students will be able to check them out when they'd like to take them home for the weekend.
As Dr. Seuss states, "reading is knowledge." Help my students gain the knowledge that they deserve.
Help them create that imagination that they long for. Your donation will help them build that independent love of reading. I always tell my students: reading is knowledge, knowledge is power, and power will help you get further in life.
