Hooray! This project is fully funded

I have 28 wonderful second grade students that I am trying to prepare the best I can for third grade. The third grade is the first time that students ever take a standardized test. I am preparing my students now with reading comprehension materials. The materials focus on different reading strategies, like fact or opinion, sequencing of story events, predicting outcomes,identifying main idea, understanding figurative language,etc. When I am reviewing these strategies with the class I go over the reading passage with the class. I show my students on the overhead projector how to find the answers in the text. Children really need to visually see how to find the answer to reading comprehension questions in the text. I also like to show my students how to number paragraphs in a long passage. Frequently on the standardized exams, question will refer to a particular paragraph. Unfortunately, my school does not have the money to buy transparencies for teachers to use and transparencies are to expensive for me to continue buying. Additionally, I need transparencies for our Everyday mathematics program. The program frequently calls for transparencies and I do not have them. Sometimes it really is not necessary, but sometimes the lesson being taught really calls for a transparency to help children understand the material being taught. It is for these reasons that I am requesting transparencies for my class instruction.
