My Students

"The more you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go" Dr. Suess My students are emergent readers and need as much practice they can get with phonics, word building and comprehension skills so that they can be the readers they were meant to be.

My students are so eager to learn to read and discover all the wonders there are to learn.

Our school is a Title 1 school with 90% of our families living in poverty. They come from diverse ethnic and economic backgrounds. We have a high population of English language learners. Our families don't always have the resources to provide all that their children need to learn.

My Project

I am requesting activity kits that will help provide the phonics, word building and comprehension skills that will help my students to become strong independent readers. They will be able to work in small groups as well as independently on these activities. It is one thing to read but a greater thing to be able to understand what they are reading. These kits will provide the practice my students will need to be successful.

Learning to read and understand what is being read is one of the most important skills that we can teach our kids.

They will be able to pick up a book anywhere and anytime and learn about anything they want to know. Without reading, we limit our exposure to what this world is all about.
