My students need two of the Leapfrog Tag reading systems and two sets of phonics activities to develop their reading fluency.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
First grade sets the reading foundation that leads towards comprehension and achievement across all curricular areas. With so much to learn, some children fall behind when they start reading long vowel words.
The students that I have the privilege to work with all have one thing in common, they are struggling with decoding skills.
However, that does not stop them from enjoying a good book. These children cannot afford to receive tutoring through private foundations due to the high cost. The differentiated instruction comes from within the different programs that our school offers.
All first grade students dream of the day when they will hold any book of their choice in their hands and read it without any kind of assistance. Think back towards that one moment when you were a first grade student and you finally understood how to connect the sounds into words and the words into sentences. WOW! You were probably so proud of yourself that you went home to share this with a loved one. I wish to give my students that same experience. You can make that a reality for many students by funding the TAG reading system.
My students come to school ready for a new learning adventure that will help them unlock the treasures of literacy.
Using the tag system along with the phonics program of short vowels and long vowel books, they will be able to make the reading transition that many first graders begin to be challenged with around this time of the year.
