Hooray! This project is fully funded

I would like to provide take home reading books for my students to be able to read at home with their parents. Children need more practice with their instructional reading level. In providing my students with the necessary books with the correct instructional reading level, it will help them learn how to read and become fluent readers. I teach about 23 Kindergarten students every year and each year the children do not have appropriate level books for them to read at home. Reading is an essential part of education. Kindergarten is the first building block for the rest of a child's education. We are the beginning and the foundation must be solid for the children to succeed in their education. My students' parents and I work hard to help our children learn. We want our children's education to be the best it can possibly be. So please help me to help the parents help their children. My students' parents and I are partners in our children's education and we hope you can be a partner too.
