Everyday our class participates in learning centers. Children work hard and learn through interacting with peers and communicating ideas to each other. My students are in their beginning years of reading. They are in need of the essential tools to guide them to becoming proficient in reading.
I teach first grade in Compton, California in a large school serving over 1000 students in grades K-5. This school is in an economically disadvantaged area. My students will be in an advantage if given the essential resources.
My class is in need of Reading Centers. During our mornings, students are in groups depending on their reading levels. This reading center will help my students become proficient in reading. It will boost confidence and foster a love for reading. My students will benefit tremendously in reading if given the opportunity.
Thank you for taking my proposal into consideration!
