Reading Can Be Fun!

My students need reading and writing resources, including stamp sets, a game show set, flip books and an activity center.

Students will learn when they can have fun while they are doing it. I am a special education teacher. My students are 4th and 5th graders. Most of the students are functioning two grade levels behind. They struggle with reading and writing. I just want to make reading and writing fun for them at their ability level. Our school is located in a high-need community. I just want my students to enjoy school and want to learn while they are here.

My students know that they can not read and refuse to try. The students do like respond to everyday pencil and paper work. I want them to have hands on activities that will keep them actively engaged.

I need fun games and materials that will encourage kids to want to learn. I want learning to be fun and exciting for the students.

You will make it possible for my students to become better readers and writers. The materials will provide the students with the academic support they need to become actively engaged in learning.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
