My Students

Reading to your child is one of the most powerful ways to help build their vocabulary and create an excitement for learning. Giving my students the ability to read by themselves builds their self esteem and love of reading.

I teach kindergarten in a Title I school where over 80% of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch.

Recent budget cuts have been devastating. The biggest impact has been on our media center/library. At this time we do not have a librarian or time to go to the library to check out books. I feel that reading is absolutely critical in education. One can never have enough books.

My Project

The Single Student CD and Read A-long Library will provide my students with 16 different stories. The Mobile Listening Center will give me a place to store the stereo and 8 headphones that I currently have for my students to use as well as all of the books and Cd's in the Read A-long Library.

Your donation will not only provide books for my students but it will also allow us to access and utilize the listening center in an uncluttered and more organized environment.

We can hardly wait to start reading!!
