I am a fourth grade teacher at P.S. 345 in East New York, Brooklyn. Our school is comprised of hard-working teachers and eager students who, to their dismay, are performing below grade level. Year after year, new attempts are made to boost test score. But without resources to reinforce the skills that are being verbally taught, how are students expected to succeed? Scholastic offers a Reading Skills Kit for the below level reader. It is a yearlong program that builds skills in language arts, vocabulary, and comprehension. This is done through high-interest reading cards followed by comprehension questions about the selection on the back. This kit would also allow my students to work at their own pace and chart their progress. I feel that my students will benefit from the kit because they will become more confident in reading as they succeed. History, geography, and science are heavily looked upon in the fourth grade. Not only will this kit help my students prepare for the New York State Science test, but it will also prepare them for the New York State Social Studies test that they will be faced with at the beginning of fifth grade. I feel that the Scholastic Reading Skills Kit will provide my students with more confidence in reading. The more confident they are, they better they will succeed. I thank you for your time and consideration.
