Mrs. Cockburn from Portland OR is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Literacy Development-Jumping Into Reading

My students need 40 jump ropes and 3 copies each of 6 jump roping and chanting books, including "The Book of Tapping and Clapping: Wonderful Songs and Rhymes Passed down from Generation to Generation for Infants and Toddlers" and "Music from The Complete Book of Rhymes, Songs, Poems, Fingerplays and Chants".

I am a speech and language pathologist for 55 high jumping students in an Art Focus School in Oregon.

Our school needs jump ropes to help give students an option of things to do at recess that also helps improve their early reading skills. Memory through motion, such as jump roping will do just that to improve rhyming skills.

I am requesting three each of rhyming and chanting books and 40 jump ropes to be able to proceed with this project. Although I am the speech and language pathologist this program will be available to all students at recess at our elementary school.

Be part of this exciting program that reinforces movement at recess and rhyming skills.
