Kindergartners Ready To Read!

My Students

Remember the first time you were able to successfully read a book? I'm so excited to help kindergartners experience that feeling this school year!

I teach at Thomasboro Academy, a high poverty inner city school in North Carolina.

In the upcoming school year, I will be working with students in kindergarten, 2nd and 3rd grade to help improve their literacy outcomes. Our students enter school behind and many of them remain that way. My goal is for all students to end the 2014-2015 school year reading on grade level. The most important step we need to take in order to reach that goal is to surround these children with amazing classroom libraries!

My Project

I am requesting the Scholastic First Readers Level A, B and C sets. These sets will provide our kindergartners with books on their level but will also provide us with books to use during guided reading. For many of our kindergartners, their very first experience in school will be on July 21. I want their first experiences to be very positive and literacy-based so that our students can forever be lovers of reading.

This project will make a difference because it is vital that our kindergartners end the year reading on grade level.

A kindergartner who is working below grade level often remains a student working below grade level. We want our students to excel in school and have positive attitudes toward it! That won't happen if they spend the rest of their school career struggling.
