Literacy Fun!

My students need dry erase markers for literacy and math. My classroom needs leveled books so my students can have books that are on their level. Thank you in advance !

My Students

I work in an inclusion class with 32 students, including 8 with special needs. They are a very well behaved class and bring joy to my co-teacher, my paraprofessional and I on a daily basis. Our students are struggling with reading and writing but our school budget can not cover all materials we need. We are a Title 1 school and for some of our students, school is the best part of their day. Our school is in Corona, Queens.

My Project

My project is to get my students to love reading again. My students need these new books so they will be able to advance in reading. My students have been reading the same books and are getting bored. This will help them to enjoy reading.

We have many struggling readers and having books that they enjoy will help them raise their reading level and begin to love reading all over again.

Our school does not have budget to buy all new books for our classes and that is why I am asking for your help. Please help us help our students!
