In our self-contained, multi-age (1st and 2nd grades) classroom, I teach 20 students that have been affected by Hurricane Katrina. I wish to help my students achieve their fullest potential in terms of reading abilities and literacy levels. Our classroom could greatly benefit from higher level reading books to help them reach these goals. We currently use Wright Group books when meeting with small groups of children during guided reading on a daily basis. Fortunately, many of my children are above level readers. However, I do not have all the materials necessary to meet the needs of these students in order to help them continue to progress. A set of 3rd grade level books, which contains several copies of multiple books, could help these higher achieving students maintain their progress and continue to reach new heights in reading. Hopefully, additional proposals will be funded which will also allow me to buy a 4th grade level set to further meet the needs of my students.
