Help Build Our Reading Comprehension!!! : )

The cost of one Comprehension Concepts Teaching Center by Lakeshore Learning is $268, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am a third grade teacher in East New York. I teach in P.S. 345, a shortage school in Brooklyn. Over 98% of our students receive free lunch. The majority of the students in our school are below grade level. At the present time about 40% of my students have learning disabilities. They are sweet children who, despite their disability, are motivated and eager to learn. Their goal (and mine) is to reach their full potential and test successfully at their grade level. Unfortunately, they are far below grade level. They enjoy reading nonfiction literature. Every day for a period they work in groups while I meet with small groups to work on reading strategies. I would like to have a supplement program that would improve their vocabulary and comprehension skills. This program would be beneficial to my students because they can chart their own progress and they can self check their work. Lakeshore offers a comprehension concepts center. The centers are ready to use and reinforce 8 key reading skills necessary for reading comprehension. Each center has a delightful book specially selected to model a specific comprehension skill. It also includes a high-interest activity that puts each concept into action -- from a fun learning game that explores fact and opinion to a flip book that reinforces cause and effect. Also, included are extension activities for each center, plus a reproducible graphic organizer that lets students apply the targeted skill to every book they read. Finally, incorporating this program in my everyday program would be extremely beneficial to my students. It would boost their interests in reading and give them confidence as they experience reading success. Thank you for considering my proposal!
