My Students

My students are mostly learning from paper packets. There are a few things they can do online. They need supplies to complete their work, as well as books to read. Many families don’t have good literature at home and children must practice reading in order to be good readers.

My Project

Please help my students get quality reading materials in their level. Since we can’t be at school they don’t have access to our library of readers. The last nine weeks of kindergarten is the time that most students put all the skills we’ve learned together and take off in reading. Without books they can practice with, they will not make growth in reading. By using these Engaging kindergarten readers, as well as the headphones to use online reading programs they will be ready for first grade! Thank you for you help!
