My Students

My students come from a low socio-economic neighborhood which means they have limited access to learning materials at home. With the current budget crisis in California, a lot of our funding has been cut. My students deserve to have equal access to learning.

I have a classroom of 24 first graders.

The majority are English Language Learners who receive free or reduced lunch and breakfast. They come from homes where both parents work. Some spend a lot of time with babysitters or afterschool daycare. My students love learning but do not always have access to materials that encourage them to learn. I have two students going to speech and some students with special needs.

My Project

Weekly Readers are a fantastic way to teach kids about current events, holidays and science themes, and famous people while also learning how to read. Each booklet is similar to a four page magazine. The students get very excited when they get their own magazine to read. We read it in class and with partners and in small groups. The magazines also have activities that the children can do to reinforce what they have read. The students get to take these magazines home when they are finished and share them with their families.

If you fund this project you will make a difference in the lives of my students and their families.

Teaching reading to 1st graders is challenging, but when a child is given something interesting to read, it is the easiest and mist rewarding job in the world.
