I am a Kindergarten Teacher in a Title 1 school. Most of my students come from low-income homes where books aren't available on a beginning reading level.
It is so important that books are available for them to practice reading each night as part of their homework. I am currently using Ziploc bags to send home a take-home book and reading log each night with my students. The bags often tear and the books and logs are often lost. A durable take-home organizer designed for young children will be the perfect item for my kindergarten students to help the traveling books stay in good condition and avoid being lost in transition. I am asking for 30 vinyl organizers. These organizers will be beneficial to my reading program and will help increase my students' reading ability by allowing them to read books at home on a nightly basis. Please consider funding this proposal.
