Reading is Fun - Literacy Games

The cost of a Reading Comprehension Games Library is $191, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am a 5th grade teacher in Charlotte, North Carolina. My school is in a suburban area about 15 minutes from "uptown." I currently have 24 students. The majority of my students receive free or reduced priced lunch. About one-third of my students are English as a Second Language learners. It is of the utmost importance to me that my students have strong reading comprehension skills when they enter Middle School in the fall. Some of my students who are just learning English will leave me reading on a 2nd or 3rd grade reading level. This is quite an accomplishment for a child who could not read English in September! For my students who are English speakers it means being prepared for placement in an English class that will challenge them to succeed. I currently have students reading from a first grade level all the way up to 9th grade. It is quite a challenge to find an activity that students with such a broad range of ability can be engaged in together. I have found a set of literacy games that would challenge all of my students. The set includes six games with topics such as main idea, fact and opinion, and drawing conclusions. The games will challenge my below grade level students and give my higher students a chance to show their knowledge. Board games are good old fashioned fun - they are competitive and they build social skills! Thank you for considering my proposal.
