The students I work with are struggling readers in 1st grade. Teaching Reading Recovery with these students to fill the gaps before they are left behind.
By donating to our project, you will not only help to increase student reading participation, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
We are trying to catch students that are falling through the cracks, and work to get them reading at grade level quickly.
One way to do this is to support students reading at home. We just need help them with the resources. I would like to start Read-n-Go Book kits for students to take home each day.
We are establishing a culture of reading in our school and in our students' homes. We are putting books in their hands and text in front of them as often as possible.
A family who reads together, reads forever.
This time is priceless. Why not make reading part of the valuable time our families spend with their children!
The Book Bags and Small Book Racks will be an easy way for students to grab Early Reading books to take home each day. The books I have chosen are leveled, therefore students will have books they should be able to read on their own.
As these students increase their reading of fiction and nonfiction books at home, they will increase their reading level as measured by MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) testing. MAP testing is completed 3 times annually. Students and teachers set goals prior to each testing cycle.
These learning at home books and resources for families will not only help us reach our goal of increased student achievement but also increase our family support.
