My students need 3 comfy seats, a complete set of sight word puzzles, a set of level 1 nonfiction sight word readers and a set of My First I Can Read Alongs on CD to improve literacy.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I have 18 amazing students this year. They are very excited about learning to read. At the end of the year I would like to have all my students reading at grade level.
Many of our students come from a high needs area.
Over 98 percent of our school participates in the free or reduced lunch program. Many of students have not been read to before coming to school and some of them have not attended school. They do not know the alphabet, letter sounds or sight words.
My students will be able to use the nonfiction sight word books in small groups to introduce students to nonfiction books that provide the sight words that we are working on in the classroom. The read along with CD and the sight word puzzles will increase sight word recognition and reading levels.
This project will improve my students' literacy skills and promote increased reading levels.
It will build their self-confidence to become better readers, so they will be ready for first grade.
