My proposal is to get paperback books into the homes of all my first grade students. Ninety per cent of our homes have no reading materials for their young children to read. Vocabulary has proven to be an undeveloped area for our students because they have not had the books available to them as their peers in more fluent neighborhoods do. My idea is to distribute a common book to all first graders during April for National Library Week. Then seek out sources to donate books in order to help them build up a home library. My dream is to give them books on a regular basis so that when they leave fifth grade, they have a good home library that can be shared with their younger siblings. A reading rally will be held to introduce the home library to first grade parents so that they will value the books and continue the idea by helping furnish the libraries.
