Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a second year teacher that is in need of books to help my students read. My kindergarten students love to be read to and love to read.

The school is 82% economically disadvantaged. My students have shown an interest in wanting to have more books that they can actually read.

Books that are on the children's reading level will give them the confidence they need to read. The read-along kits help teach children the basic building blocks of reading—step by step! Each kit is based on a simple, themed story—with a big book and 6 student books, plus a read-along cassette and CD. All I have to do is pop in a recording, and it guides kids through the book in 3 progressive steps: First, children listen to the story as they follow along in their books. Then, the recording reviews key words and reads the book again as children track the text word for word. Finally, students are encouraged to read each page of the book aloud—either alone or with a teacher or partner!

Please help not only improve the reading skills of my students, but help my students understand the pleasures of reading a book!
