My Students

We are a Title One school in the state of Georgia. My class size is currently at 17 student. Our classroom is made up of two students who are ELL (English Language Learners); five students who receive special needs services; four students who receive speech services; and as a class, their readiness levels range from three years of age to age seven. Many of my students have little or no access to technology or age appropriate reading material at home.

Helping to shape the minds of our youth and build a love for reading and writing, is my ultimate goal.

With guidance in this ever changing world, I want to imbed in my students that all things are possible. If they can dream it, they can achieve it.

My Project

My students need informational reading and listening material that is appealing and age appropriate. The materials that I am requesting will be used to exposed my young readers to nonfiction text, which has been proven to promote student success. Having these audio nonfiction reading materials will help my student to develop the background knowledge needed to be successful throughout their education.

By donating to this project, you will be helping young readers to build upon their background knowledge and increase their listening skills.

With the use of these informational audiobooks, my young readers will have access to a listening center that is equipped with reading material that is engaging; which will aid in their academic success.
