My students need Illustory book kits to help them become published authors!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach in a Title I school. The majority of students at my school get free or reduced-price lunch. Many of my students come to kindergarten without preschool experience. Therefore, we start at the beginning, teaching basic letter identification, and by the end of kindergarten they are reading!
My students have hard lives outside of school, but the minute they step into my classroom they know that they are loved.
They know they are there to learn and become the successful individuals that they can be.
These amazing Illustory book kits will allow my students to write their own book, take it through the complete writing process, including having it published! After completing their book, we mail them in and they are made into a hard cover book for students to keep. I still have one that I created in first grade and it is a precious memory. After our books are returned, we have a huge publishing party. We roll out a red carpet, and the students get to feel like true celebrities. There are balloons and popcorn, and they get to read their book on our classroom stage. It is truly what dreams are made of!
