My Students

I teach Reading to Kindergarten students who love to read. We were on our way sounding out words and reading our readers. We come from a Title 1 School with 100% free breakfast and lunch. Students didn't have a lot of extra resources at home, so we collected books whenever possible.

My Project

My students did not get to take books home with them. My families do not have the resources to spend on extra books. The readers I have chosen to send home are different levels for the students to learn and grow with. We learn letters and sounds and learned how to decode to read words. The early readers begin with decoding and move on to reading sight words. These books will give them the opportunity to read, learn and grow.

Students love to have a book to read in their hands.

Even before they could read words, they loved to "read" the story through pictures. Help me extend their love of reading.
