Goal

To promote reading at home between adult GED students and their children. 

 

What will be done with my students

Upon registration in my GED class, I will ask the student if they are a parent or a grandparent. If their answer is yes, a book appropriate for that child's age level will be given to them. I will limit it to one book per family (using the age level of the youngest child). I will have a supply of picture books (for the pre-school children) titled "How Rocket Learned to Read," "Will You Read to Me," and "Read to Tiger." I will also have a supply of leveled readers for the elementary age (levels 1, 2, and 3).  

 

Benefits to my students

By providing a child's book to my GED students to share with their children, I am showing them that I care about them and the future of their children. It reveals to my student that education is important and by reading to their children, they are not only spending quality time with them, they are also instilling a love for reading within themselves and their kids. Reading can change their lives and their children's lives! 

 

Describe the Students

I have approximately 50 students enrolled at any given time in my classroom. All of my students are GED students ages 16 and up. Most of my students are from the lower economic society (many receiving state assistance) and single parents. They are entering my classroom in order to study and eventually obtain a State of Florida High School Diploma, which is needed to find a job. 

 

Budget Narrative

All prices are taken from Barnes and Nobles book store using my 20% teacher discount. Only 1 book will be given per GED student (can be a parent or a grandparent.)
