Mrs. Campbell from Saint Paul MN is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Reading!

My students need sturdy clear-view book bags that snap for take home books and more literacy learning tools to help them continue to increase in reading levels.

My Students

In my first grade classroom, students come in from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. Two-thirds of my students come from families who speak another language at home. We have first graders fluent in six different languages and born in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the United States! Many of my students also come from families experiencing poverty. However, they love coming to school and they love being with each other.

It is evident that my first graders this year are enthusiastic and very observant as they have great ideas to share when participating in discussions.

Many of my students have limited English or are coming to school to experience learning English for the very first time as newcomers to America. All of my students are active learners who need engaging and hands on materials. They enjoy sharing our learning resources and appreciate self-guided learning experiences because this enables them to be more independent and also teach each other.

My Project

The use of Book Bags are a daily activity for my students. Each day they choose a book from their independent reading box and put it in their bag to take home to read to someone in the family. Having a new "Book Buddy" bag will help students keep their books safe from falling out and more exciting to look at.

My students need more literacy activities to explore letter sounds and words with, during independent Reading Center time.

They will use the instant learning centers and letter tiles to practice phonemic awareness by building, reading and writing high frequency words.
