Help me give my students more opportunities to learn grade-level sight words through books, a hands-on activity center and dry erase markers.
The students in our school work hard to shine to the best of their abilities. Sadly, many do not get the support needed at home and as a result, they struggle with grade-level work which can lead them to be one or more grade levels behind. Unfortunately, our school doesn't always have the means necessary to supply them with an excess of materials that could benefit them greatly. As a Title I school in an urban area, our funds can be limited. My first graders work hard and aim to please, and they deserve access to things that will help them be successful learners.
I teach first grade in a Title I school in the Bronx. Many of the students in this school are at least one grade level behind in all subjects. My first-grade students are still learning to read but are already behind in their skills. Unfortunately, my school does not always have the means necessary to provide the resources needed such as sight word book sets. These students also do not get the support they need at home to strengthen what is being learned at school.
By helping fund this project, you will be supplying my classroom with materials that will provide opportunities to learn and practice grade-level sight words that will enable me to give struggling students more resources during reading workshop.
By having these sets of books, I will be able to do more small group instruction to help move student reading levels. Right now first-grade students are expected to be reading around level G/H but many of my students are still in the A-D range. The activity center will allow for hands-on manipulation and a multi-sensory approach to learning sight words. Dry erase markers provide the opportunity during our phonics block of the day where we review writing many grade-level sight words in isolation and in sentences.
Your support will help my students with their reading skills as they will enjoy having new and different books to read that focus on sight-words they are working on mastering! Thank you for your help!
