Let's Get TOONed Into Reading And Writing!

My students need a collection of TOON comic books to support them with their reading, writing and listening skills.

My Students

Do you remember reading your first comic book and how you felt? My students have never read a comic book.

I currently teach 27 very sweet first graders in a Title I school located in a high poverty and high crime area in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

All of my students receive free breakfast and free lunch. Many of my students come from homes where English is not spoken.

My Project

I want to make reading, listening and writing enjoyable for my six and seven year old students. These books will be used both during independent reading time and well as guided reading time. The TOON quality comic books will allow my students to achieve greatness in their literacy skills. In addition to reading and listening to these books, my students will also be creating their own comic books.

I want my first graders to become even more excited about reading.

It will be wonderful to have high quality comic books in our classroom library. It will also be awesome for my students to create their own comic books.
