Reading Books in Every Nook!

My students need just right leveled books to practice reading at school and at home with their families.

My Students

Our school is made up a variety of families from different neighboorhoods, educational backgrounds, and economic groups. One of the many things we all have in comon is a love and deisre for these children and our desire to have them all be successful.

51% of our students are reading at grade level and we want to raise this percentage!

We want to create equity among all students and have equal access to books and give parents tools to help them read at home!

My Project

I am requesting a variety of leveled reading books which will be given out to families at a literacy night. We are trying to engage all families and give them tools and strategies to help their student be a successful read.

We want to close the reading gap and get every child reading at grade level both at home and at school!

We will be hosting a familiy literacy night where we will teach parents different reading strategies and then give them tools and books to take home to read with thier children. These books will allow families who do not have many books at home to have thier "just right books" for their children.
