Ms. Epley from Memphis TN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students Word Skills workbooks so that their families can help them learn to read at home.
Every day my students come to school with smiles on their faces and light in their eyes. It brings unending joy to my heart to watch that light turn into the fire of their eagerness to learn. The fabulous second graders in my class work hard every day to accomplish our class motto "Do hard things!"
I teach in a small urban public elementary school where 78% of the students come from low-income families.
We operate as a peaceful community where each child is shown that they are cared for and that their teachers believe in them.
My students are full of love for others and excitement for learning. They are hard workers, talkers, problem solvers, helpers, readers, researchers, and lovers...their possibilities are endless!
In the past, research had shown that a child's ability to read proficiently by the end of third grade was a reliable indicator to whether or not they'd ever read on grade level. However, school moves quickly! New studies have shown that this literacy indicator has moved down to second grade! My students need as many resources as possible to help them bridge that gap.
These Word Skills workbooks will help my second graders be able to learn to read by involving their families in literacy activities.
Research also suggests that students show more academic growth when their families are involved in their school work. However, some families don't know what they need to do to help their child or don't have access to the tools needed. These workbooks will be sent home so that families can practice literacy with their children without the confusion of what to do. We will have a WORD PARTY for the children and their families once all of the workbooks are returned completed!
I believe these workbooks will help my students through the variety of vocabulary, grammar, spelling, and comprehension activities. I am asking for different grade levels of the book so each student will have material that is pertinent to their current reading level and how much they need to grow.
Please help me involve my students families in their academic growth!
