My Students

In my kindergarten classroom, I have a diverse group of students beginning to explore books and reading. These students can't wait to get their hands on new books each day. I can't wait to provide them with the opportunity to read new and exciting literature! These students live in a high poverty community and several have limited access to quality literature. I send a book home each night for them to practice reading. These books are exactly what I need!

My Project

Purchasing these leveled readers will put quality literature in the hands of my beginning and growing readers! My hope, as their kindergarten teacher, is to instill a love of reading that will continue throughout their educational career and eventually their adult life. A variety of books (at the appropriate instructional level) will ensure success for each student as they practice new reading skills each night. These books will also give my students an opportunity to show their friends and family what they are capable of. These books will prepare my students for first grade and teach them the importance of practice.
