My Students

My K-2 and 3-5 students love to read and write, but they may need a bit more help from me to do so. Reading and writing is a complex process, and this complexity is tricky for them. However, despite struggling with reading and writing, they are so motivated to become better readers and writers.

The looks on their faces when they discover the power of reading and writing is priceless.

They are so excited to grow their literacy skills, and they feel a sense of pride and accomplishment when they can read and write what they choose.

My Project

The books I am requesting are desperately needed to help students learn how to read. Each book adds a more complex reading skill, and by gradually increasing the difficulty of texts along with expert instruction from me, students feel successful and positive about reading. We need your help to supply the books students need to grow and become lifelong readers.

These books are used on a daily basis, year after year, for students in a variety of grade levels.

Students need many books to be able to read a new book every day for 20 weeks during their intervention with me. This intervention, known as Reading Recovery, is proven to accelerate student growth in reading and writing. After finishing this intensive intervention, students are able to better access the curriculum in their classrooms. They also leave feeling successful and proud about what they can do as readers and writers.

With your donation, we will be able to replace our worn and outdated books from decades ago since we do not have enough money to do this without your support. We will also be able to add in extra books to the reading levels that do not have enough books to sufficiently teach students how to become readers.
