Ms. Newquist from Los Angeles CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ready to Read

My students need leveled reading books and different games to work on building their reading skills. The phonics magnetic word building boards are going to be great for students to work on independently.

My Students

My kindergarteners from Los Angeles are going to be brand new to elementary school next year! The year will be an exciting time for students to learn to read, write, count, add, work with others and much more!! It is going to be a year full of growth and fun!

Kindergarteners come to school with excitement and an immense readiness to learn!

I can't wait to see all they accomplish this year and hope they finish the year with a love for learning.

My Project

Kindergarteners come to school excited to learn to read! Students will use the leveled reading books to practice at their independent reading level. They will also be able to borrow some of these books in order to practice at home with their parents. With over half my students coming from low income households, I want to help provide them all with materials to further their learning.

Learning to read is a complex process that I want my students to enjoy!

The phonics magnetic word building boards and phonics trains will be helpful and engaging for students to work with to continue building these skills. I hope this will make learning to read a fun experience for them!
