Our focus for the remainder of the school year will be to identify and provide funding for teachers in need of classroom libraries and to help them create a print-rich environment. Our objective is to help 20 teachers acquire quality-reading materials for their classrooms.
Reading is the key to learning. Classroom libraries help teachers promote reading, increase reading fluency and comprehension. We want to help foster a love for reading and help teachers provide their students with easy access to books at the correct reading level and child's interest.
Currently, we are applying for grants to make this objective possible but we still rely on our community donors for support. Please consider donating today!
I am so incredibly thankful for your help getting my classroom set up. I was able to order: a class set of clipboards to get students moving around the room, important US documents, US bulletin board borders/decor, US map, Post-it pads, materials to post our schedule/rules on the wall, reading corner rug/seating/pillows/books, and storage bins.
Attached are pictures of the science wall, history wall, and the reading corner - all made possible from your donation. Thank you SO much!
We applied for a Ford Foundation Community Grant and we updated our website with pictures of print-rich classrooms.
