Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach 5th grade at an under-resourced public school in East New York. All of my students qualify for free lunch and over 25% of my students have been diagnosed with learning disabilities. All of my students began the year reading far below grade level. Despite these obstacles, my students must meet New York State's fifth grade standards in order to enter middle school. More importantly, they must learn to read fluently and on grade level so that they can succeed academically and later professionally. My students require intensive reading remediation. Many have not mastered basic phonics skills, and their limited working vocabularies disrupt comprehension. I think using the Hooked on Phonics® Master Reader program will help my students reach their potential. The program uses advanced phonics skills designed to help kids read with speed and accuracy. It helps students learn to break down large words into parts so they can read more fluently and don't spend so much time and effort sounding out each word. Master Reader includes four levels of interactive computer games, the 64 attention-grabbing stories, and the exciting Strange Museum chapter book series. By funding this proposal, you can help my students become successful, confident readers. Thank you, in advance, for giving my students the chance to succeed.
