I teach a first grade class in Spanish in the heart of Richmond, CA, and I also chair my grade level team. In total we have 96 students, nearly all of whom qualify for free lunch. About half the school's students are second language learners. Because we believe that reading quickly and accurately is the key to success in life, we started a school-wide (K-5) challenge this year to learn the top 1,000 most frequent words in English. Together, these words compose nearly 90% of everything we read, so knowing them obviously makes reading easier. The district-wide benchmark for 1st grade students is 100 words. In the past, we have pushed students to 200. This year, with the 1,000 word challenge, we are pushing our students even higher. While the school has set up an exciting and motivating field trip for students who reach the goal, we feel that 1st graders who make it half way should also be rewarded for their outstanding effort. Therefore, we are asking for the donation of Klutz Kwiz games for 1st grade students who reach the 500 word benchmark. These electronic games come with a set of 284 challenging general knowledge questions for "really smart 7 and 8 year-olds" (a high second grade level). Students use the multiple-choice key pad to answer questions and aim for a high score. We feel that these games are both rewarding and appropriately educational--a great way to keep kids learning over the summer. Students can also buy extra question sets later on, if they so choose, to use with their controller. Thank you so much in advance for your generosity in rewarding our students' achievement, and for your support of the vision that one-day, all children in this nation will have the opportunity for an excellent education.
