I teach English Language Development (ELD) to kindergartners through third graders at Edison Brentwood Academy in East Palo Alto. Last year we adopted a guided reading program and myself and the other ELD teacher were asked to do guided reading twice a week with our students. I teach approximately 250, mostly Hispanic, students (half our student population) each day. Guided reading allows children to read at their own level with children of the same ability, reading groups consist of 5-6 students each, and one of the challenges I face this year is having meaningful and educational activities for students do do while I am reading with individual groups. My hope is that some generous soul(s)will assist me in providing activities for my student's. These activities must be student driven, engaging, educational, and fun. I have researched student activities which focus on alphabet sounds, phonemic awareness, sight words, and literacy, all of which serve as extensions to guided reading. Each of these items can be purchased individually to make it financially easier to donors. These activities will benefit our entire school population as they will be shared between myself and my partner ELD teacher (approx. 500 students). Thank you in advance for your generous support of my student's education. Sincerely, Bri Sample aka Ms. Bri Edison Brentwood Academy
