Help me give my students the resources they need to help build a strong home-school literacy connection! These books will be utilized as part of a take-home reading system where students will practice texts in the home!
I have the honor of teaching an incredible group of enthusiastic first graders who are excited, eager and ready to learn! Each year, they are energetic and self-directed learners! My school is located just south of Richmond in Chester, Virginia. My students are always ready to move, explore, expand their vocabularies, read, write, and use their imaginations!
This project will support the critical need for first-grade students to develop their reading skills in accuracy, fluency, and comprehension in both school and the home environment.
The deep connection between learning in both of those venues cannot be understated and is a critical piece to student progress.
The resources requested in this project will be used as a part of our effort to strengthen and build literacy connections between both the school and home.
Students will receive the take-home bags requested in this project and will use them to transport the high-quality leveled texts also requested in this project.
They will work to build literacy engagement and interest and hopefully inspire student's imaginations to think beyond the pages of the book!
The reading envelopes and texts will support our belief that literacy learning is integral in both the classroom and is to be supported in the home environment. These materials would put brand new, rich fiction and non-fiction stories in the hands of our students and families!
