Project Goal

The goal of this project is to increase student achievement by placing more books and literacy learning stations in students hands. Students will be able to take books and reading activities home to continue their learning that has begun at school. This project will increase their eagerness to become better readers. Students' reading levels will increase because they will have much needed materials to practice reading skills. 

 

How Project Benefits Students

My students have a love for reading and would greatly benefit by having reading materials and centers that can be taken home to practice reading skills learned in school. Book baggies and books will be taken home weekly for students to practice reading on their level. Each week students will receive different books to take home. Literacy centers can also be checked out by parents to increase phonemic awareness and phonological skills. All of the students are from a low socioeconomic background and many do not have funds or access to support their reading needs. This project will greatly help students that do not have access to books at home.  

 

Expected Outcome(s)

By providing books and reading take home materials on an individualized level reading skills reading skills will increase. With this project, at least 90% of students can be reading on or above grade level by the end of the year. It gives them the opportunity to practice reading skills at home, during after school care and anywhere they would like to take their book baggies. 

 

Detailed Cost Summary

Take home book baggies, leveled reading books and literacy stations will be used to increase students reading skills.
