I teach Academic Intervention Services to students in grades K-5.
I encourage my students to know that they are readers.
“Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.” -Margaret Fuller.
Our rural elementary school in upstate New York has a student population of three hundred and fifty students. Students who are at risk of failing the New York State Assessments and students who are having difficulty academically are recommended to receive Academic Intervention Services. That's where my room comes into play.
My students are hardworking and imaginative young learners. They strive every day to improve all areas of their literacy deficiencies. My students are all very eager to learn and love coming to school. They are independent, hardworking and compassionate.
By purchasing these books, we can distribute differentiated books during the holiday season to students who are in dire need of reading materials at home.
These students will then be able to read with their families over winter break, in hopes to encourage lasting literacy gains and positive reading experiences.
By promoting reading with young students, their skills can be sustained throughout the school year, enabling students to stay on track for a long lasting love of reading. The reading teachers will wrap up and distribute the gift of reading to those students who need it most. Encouraging literacy is a sure key for the future success of our next generation of students. Our hopes is to place a book in each child's hands, before they walk out of the door for their winter fun!
