Ms. Chick from Cleveland OH is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Today a Reader. Tomorrow a Leader!

My students need exposure to engaging non-fiction text selections. Time for Kids magazines are engaging, informational, and developmentally appropriate! The digital component is an added bonus! The Reading Comprehension Journals will aid in reading accountability.

My Students

"Tell them and they may forget. Teach them and they may remember. Involve them and they will learn." My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Learning should not be one of the challenges they are faced with. It is my goal to engage, every scholar, every day!

Primary learning experiences set the foundation for success in later grades.

With the proper resources and opportunities, my scholars will soar to greater heights, beyond their wildest imagination.

In our classroom, we dream big! It's a learning space where inquisition meets challenge.

My Project

Reading is at the core of success across all disciplines. When students enter second grade they transition from learning how to read into reading to learn.

Reading feeds the Imagination.

Time for Kids allows for students to interact with non-fiction texts in a fun and engaging way. Students are exposed to a plethora of non-fiction topics. The graphics bring reading to life! Time For Kids inspires and motivates curious minds! The Reading Comprehension Interactive Journals will allow students to write about reading.The High-Interest Intervention Reading Folders and Talk About Text cards will allow students to explore reading concepts deeper and apply the learned knowledge in innovative ways. These resources combined will allow students to enter a different world of interacting with texts!
