Rainbow Readers Centers for Beginning Readers

Help me give my students a color printer to print centers in color (no more black and white), laminating pouches to make them last, a cart to organize them, and a pocket chart to organize students into groups.

My Students

Hello, I teach Kindergarten at a Title I school and my students come in with great eagerness and participation in their quest for knowledge. It is amazing to see children this young engaging, exploring, learning, and achieving new ideas and goals. While most of my students are English Language Learners, from low-income and transient families, their experiences are limited. My students - past and present, has taught me so much. Most of my students and parents have barriers outside of the classroom that won’t allow them many opportunities to explore places to gain many experiences. Obstacles or barriers such as work, school, not having the time or money to take their children to places like museums or summer camps. For these reasons, I am more understanding and empathetic to my students whose parents rely heavily on me to teach their children when they can’t.

My Project

The Rainbow Readers is a program that monitor students’ essential pre-reading skills. This program will allow teachers, students, and parents to see the progress being made.

Donations to this project will help create many fun, exciting activities and experiences for my readers and writers.

As they complete the levels in the Rainbow Readers literacy program they will feel empowered and encouraged to keep trying their best..

The Rainbow Reader Program has seven levels which include:

1. Red Reader: Writes first name correctly with capital and lower-case letters.

2. Orange Reader: Names all capital letters.

3. Yellow Reader: Names all lower-case letters.

4. Green Reader: Produces all letter sounds.

5. Blue Reader: Writes first and last name correctly with capital and lower-case letters.

6. Indigo Reader: Reads 50 sight words.

7. Violet Reader: Reads 100 sight words.

The color printer will help me print many activities for centers and they will be used to help my students learn their letters, sounds, writing their names, and learning their sight words. It is important for me to help my students graduate from each level of the Rainbow Readers. My students need to see pictures in color instead of black and white because it will not only help improve and increase their attention and focus, but it will ultimately help increase their academic achievement.

I will use the easel board to teach whole group lessons and re-teach lessons to students who need extra support and guidance.
