There are many obstacles in learning to read, and I usually encounter many of those when my new kindergarten students arrive in August. My class consists of English and Spanish speaking students and students who are mainstreamed from the Curriculum Adaptive and Cross-categorical classes. I want every child to reach the goal of becoming a reader, but oftentimes, there are problems which stand in his/her way. My proposal is to purchase 2 PC programs, (Language Tune-Up Kits) to use in my classroom. This program supports an unlimited number of students and does not require a site license. It has free, lifetime support, which is really important for the classroom teacher. Additionally, the program is research based so it meets No Child Left Behind criteria. Our area is small and services to help Dyslexic children are very limited. I would enjoy providing a tool for helping these children to read successfully. The program is not grade or age specific so older, struggling students could use the programs, also. Additionally, it can be used for both English and Spanish speaking students. Our school is a Title I school where approximately 72% of the student population receives reduced or free lunch. The area has suffered a tremendous loss of textile and furniture jobs. The results of getting this proposal funded will mean that a future generation will have the option of choosing their economic future, rather than allowing the economic future to choose them. Learning to read effectively is a gift that every child should receive. Thank you for considering this proposal and please know that the gift of reading is in your hands.
