Recently, I entered into a Pre-K through 5th grade position at a rural, at-risk Title 1 school with many families at the poverty level. 77% of our school population require Title 1 funds. Our budget is inadequte for us to meet the needs of our students. We are located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Morganton North Carolina. Our library is modest and small, but a most beautiful place for our students to learn and seek the value of learning through reading. I have been able to find ways to enagage each grade level in activities through flexible scheduling; however, I have found that there are very few items in our library designed to reach early learners in Pre-K through Kindergarten, the ages I feel are the foundation for early learning. I would like to engage our early learners in centers and experiences geared to explore sources and formats for reading, listening and viewing. It is my goal to have the students engaged in storytelling, higher thinking skills, acting, flannel story activities, listening and integrated reading through materials that would help provide these types of experiences for them. The materials we are proposing are several thematic story bags with manipulatives designed for multicultural and scientific stories, felt stories and storyboards with nursery rhymes, an apron with singing story attachments, and story puzzles. Approximately 53 early learners of various cultures and exceptionalities from E.C. to gifted will be touched by the opportunity to learn through your gifts. These opportunities will allow our students the prospects of learning they may never have otherwise... the chance to learn through their own autonomy, actions and pursuit of education through literature, props, experiences and integration of learning. Your support would rewarded many times over as a new community of learners emerge and grow. Please help us make this a reality.
