Read to Us!

My students need books with read-along cds for our Reading & Listening Center. Our list includes Frog & Toad Together, books with audio cds and a few small group book sets to accompany them.

My Students

My little scholars LOVE books! They can't seem to get enough of them. I want to encourage them to keep reading but our class library is not very diverse. We have a great reading and listening center but lack the books to enjoy it. Please help bring literature to these little minds!

My students come from a rough area.

They live in the worst part of our city. Many struggle with poverty and hunger. Most of the kids come from broken homes or even foster homes. They have hard lives already and they are only 6 years old. Our school has become the light of their world. While others are telling these kids they will never amount to anything, our school tells them to put their heads up high because education and motivation will make them leaders. We tell them how much worth they hold, and we teach them to set high goals for themselves.

My Project

We have a reading and listening center, which gives the students an opportunity to hear literature far more often. This helps with emergent reading skills and vocabulary. However, we need sets of books like Frog & Toad Together and the corresponding audio books. Right now, we only have 2 audio books and no book sets. This will help expand our library and expand their minds.

Literacy is a major issue in our country and across the world.

Statistically, my students are some of the least likely in our nation to become literate and highly educated. Give these students a fighting chance by turning them on to reading.
