Kindergarten Reading and Space

My Students

We spend a lot of our time in various centers all day long. I want my students to be on reading level(or higher) by the end of the year: to do so they need to hear as much reading as possible. Our biggest challenge for this is that we don't have a reading center and can't fit all our groups in a day

I work with the most amazing students ever!

We are in a very high needs area. Almost all of my students qualify for free lunches and I have 5 students that are considered homeless. Over half of my class comes from a broken home. Some of my students have a harder home life than I can imagine and any 5 or 6 year old should ever have to face. My goal is to make this classroom somewhere they want to be, for them to know they are always loved and respected here, to make them love school, and love learning.

My Project

My students need a larger carpet because we have concrete floors and as a kindergarten class we do lots of whole group activities on the carpet and the whole class cannot even fit on our current carpet. We also do lots of center activities and they love to do them on the carpet but there is never enough space. My students will benefit from a listening center because most of them are not read to at home. We read in whole group but having a center where they can listen and follow along with will help many of my students begin reading and others to continue developing their reading. Reading is crucial for any job and it is important for students to be able to read in kindergarten. This center will help them to read and make them more confident in themselves.

By donating to this cause you will know that you are helping students have a space to learn and develop skills for life.

Also, you are helping young students in one of the most crucial areas of learning, reading. This will help to develop and grow young readers to their fullest potential.
