Lifelong Readers Need YOU!

My students need books to learn how to read in small groups.

My Students

When I was a kid, we had these big heavy books with little stories in them and that was how we learned to read. Now, we have small books, with bright colors and manageable amounts of words! We would love to have some for our classroom!

My students are a diverse group of five- and six-year-olds who are hungry to learn!

We are a focused school, with reduced class size, due to our 50% free and reduced meals. Our school promotes a positive learning environment where our students strive to reach their highest levels of ability.

My Project

With these materials, I will be able to have small groups of students practice reading with me at a table and they will each be able to have their own book! They can sound out words and check the vivid pictures for clues. In addition, these books will serve so many students as they will return to my library for the next student to use!

The impact of this project is pretty simple in words.

You are helping teach this kids to read FOR LIFE. Legitimately, they will have you to thank for their success through their entire lives. Short explanation, HUGE impact.
