Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach 3rd grade in an urban classroom where fluency is hard to come by. Most of my students are 1-1 1/2 years behind grade level in the fluency with which they read. I would love for them to increase their fluency by using books on CD plus the CD players and headphones in a center during our 90 minute reading block. I want my students to be the best they can be and by becoming fluent readers, the students will achieve part of their dreams.
