Ms. Mays from Lexington KY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need language and literacy materials to use in our classroom.
As a teacher of students in low income/single-parent family homes, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
The students in my classroom are students with learning and emotional disabilities.
They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many are students with a range of disabilities, emotional disturbance and specific learning disability. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may deprive them of life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
Children introduced to reading early on tend to read earlier and excel in school compared to children who are not exposed to language and books at a young age (American Academy of Pediatrics). Reading, rhyming, singing, and talking — beginning from birth — profoundly influence literacy and language development, the foundations for all other learning.
More than 1 in 3 American children start Kindergarten without the skills they need to learn to read (American Academy of Pediatrics).
Developing early literacy skills makes it easier for children to learn to read. With your donation of alphabet learning blocks, alphabet sounds teaching, and the circle time learning center, we will be able to promote early literacy in our classroom. Reading is an essential skill for success in school and later in life.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
