Fundations Kit for Fun Learning!

My students need a fundations classroom set to help teach essential reading and writing skills.

My Students

I have a very diverse group of students in my class. There are special education students and English Language Learners, as well as general education students in our room. My students are energetic, caring, and very ambitious. They work hard every day and come to school ready to learn. They always have a positive attitude about learning and can't wait to learn new things.

I want to inspire my students to learn all that they can and be the best they can be.

As an early childhood school, we work hard to make sure our students are successful learners today and in the future.

My Project

This fundations kit contains materials for all of my students to help them learn essential reading skills! Fundations provides strategies essential to a comprehensive reading, spelling, and handwriting program. It's a great way to boost student's reading skills early on.

Fundations makes learning to read fun while laying the groundwork for life-long literacy.

My students deserve to have a fun way to learn to read. Without this kit, we don't have the materials to make this happen in the classroom. I want to make sure I get all my students up to grade-level standards by the end of the year. This kit would help out tremendously!
