Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a first grade teacher at Public School 290, located in the East New York section of Brooklyn. We have approximately 95-99% free lunch. We also have a very high population of ESL students. As you can imagine, anything taught in the classroom is strengthened through work at home. Encouraging parents and families to partner with me in moving their children toward proficiency in reading and other academic areas would be a much easier task with parent friendly school-to-home materials. Parents want the best for their children, but they are often reluctant to assist at home because they just aren't sure what to do or are unsure of the best ways to extend lessons. Read-Together-Take-Home Packs provide parents with the materials and step by step instructions needed to enjoy reading, writing, and skills-building activities with their children as a way to enforce what they are learning in the classroom. Children can have higher rates of achievement when their parents are actively involved in their educational experiences. Please assist me in providing a shared rewarding experience for my students and their parents.
