Ms. Ostrowski from Elgin IL is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

First Grade Center Kit

My students need guided literacy centers to practice their literacy skills while I work with small groups.

My Students

Some of my students don't get the extra practice they need with literacy skills. This could help them practice their skills in class and push them to improve these skills and engage them in their own learning.

I teach first grade in a Title I building.

Developing literacy skills at this age is critical for their success. Some of my students come from very low income and need a little extra. With the extra support of guided literacy centers my students can get the extra support they need through guided work groups and centers. My students are eager to learn, but due to funding we lack financial support to provide resources for our students.

My Project

These materials will be used daily by the students during centers and small group time. Students will engage in the different activities and be practicing different skills to apply to their reading and writing. Students will engage in the different center activities with different choices in each area.

This project will increase my students skills.

They will have more activities to choose from in their centers and engage in their learning. With the extra practice students will expand their abilities and increase their reading skills.
