Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a special education teacher in an inclusion kindergarten class in central Harlem. Most of my students are enjoying their first time in school, as many of them did not attend pre-kindergarten. I have observed that my students love story time and are excited to learn how to read and write. They love to hear the wonderful story books that I read during the read aloud. They are even beginning to read along as I read the same story books over and over again. As part of our Teacher's college reading workshop curriculum, students are expected to learn how to read by practicing the good habits of readers, which I model. One such habit is reading high interest story books to build stamina and fluency. In order for my students to each read their own story book during reading workshop, they need to have 1-4 story books for their personal book baggy. Thus, I am requesting 17 copies of the following books: Caps for sale, Miss Bindergarten get ready for kindergarten, I know an old lady who swallowed a fly, and Chrysanthemum. My students would love to have these books in their own personal book baggy.
