Help me give my students Take Home Book Bags and books to fill them in order to provide students and their families with meaningful reading activities to engage in together!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Many of my students face struggles and challenges in their daily lives, but I see their dedication, and the joy they find in learning is truly inspiring.
We work together to create a learning community where everyone is safe and feels valued.
During their time in my class, I work to show my students the rewards hard work brings, as well as to show them that our unique differences are to be celebrated and respected.
I teach in a Title I school with the majority of students receiving free or reduced price lunch. While our families want their children to be successful, and there is great community support for the schools, I know that many students will not come to school prepared with the necessary supplies. I do my best to ensure that all students have what they need academically, physically, and emotionally during the time they are in my care.
Studies have shown that while homework leads to increased school success in middle school and high school, the traditional paper and pencil style of homework has little or no effect on elementary students' academic achievement. What does lead to higher success is families taking time to learn together and parents modeling the value of education.
The activities in the Take Home Book Bags and the books to accompany them will provide families with high-quality, enjoyable learning activities to complete together.
These Book Bags will foster a love of reading and include journal prompts and interactive, engaging activities that the whole family can collaborate on, helping to make education a priority.
The Reading Kits Mega-Bundle will provide more guided support for students and families in need of extra help meeting early literacy learning goals, without relying on rote skill-and-drill worksheets.
