Mrs. Ganter from Meriden CT is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Readers Workshop

My students need an organized Big Book holder/magnetic board for use during Readers/Writers Workshop.

  • $333 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Organized big books and tools for teaching reading are needed for our new curriculum which includes Writers and Readers workshop.

My students attend kindergarten in a public school.

For the first time in our school system, we are implementing a full day curriculum with the majority of the morning focusing on reading/comprehension skills. Many students come from homes with little opportunity to explore books, letters, etc. My students need book handling skills as well as phonics and phonemic awareness opportunities.

My Project

The Magnetic Write & Wipe Big Book Center will provide students with opportunities to choose books that are appropriate for their level. They will be able to use big books and participate in activities which include concepts about print. Students will be able to match and spell words from the books using magnetic letters. Students will stretch out words and put phonemes/letters together to make new words.

My students need to have access to literacy tools in the classroom during centers and intervention groups.

Books will be accessed during shared reading, guided reading, REaders Workshop, Writers workshop, center instruction, phonic and phonemic awareness instruction, and sight word instruction. Students who are exposed to big books/literacy tools will have increased scores on the Concepts about Print assessment, the writing prompt as well as the DRA and Phonemic Awareness Inventory.
