PM Readers = AM Achievers!

My students need a series of PM Rigby Readers for Guided Reading (they are 2nd grade ESL students). They want to develop strong reading skills and a love for reading!

My Students

I teach a second grade class in an inner-city public elementary school.

My students are primarily recent immigrants from China (mostly from the province of Fuchow).

These children come from low-income families and they live below the poverty line. For them English is not spoken at home so they are at risk of falling behind other children in the 2nd grade, and in the same classroom. They need extra support in learning English so that they can discover the joy of reading, they can follow learning in the classroom, and so that they can achieve their dreams. My students are eager learners and I know that they will benefit greatly from having the proper tools to learn English.

My Project

My students need a set of Rigby PM Readers in Orange, Turquoise, Purple and Gold Levels (6 copies of each title) for Guided Reading. PM Readers help teach beginning and struggling readers with reading comprehension, decoding, phonetic awareness, spelling, fluency, vocabulary and phonics. PM Readers were developed in New Zealand and have a history of success. My goal is to help the children improve their reading skills so that they can read fluently, learn English, and catch up with their classmates.

The students will take these books home on a daily basis to practice and to master basic reading skills.

Donations to this project will enable my students to not only meet grade-level reading expectations but also to become strong life long readers. We will work hard to take good care of these books such that future classes will benefit from using them as well. My students are enthusiastic to learn and would love to start reading by themselves!
