Goal

By the end of the school year, 100% of my students will increase reading performance as measured by Pinellas County Kindergarten Assessments. Through the use of Jan Richardson's Reading Program and all the guided reading books that come with it, 85% of my students will meet or exceed the end of the year reading expectation (Level D). 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will come to reading group 1 to 3 times per week, based on their reading level, for intensive reading instruction. Once we have finished a reading lesson in small group, students will then place that book in a reading baggie. As I present lessons on strategies good readers use, either in small group or whole group, students will then have a bag of books that is at their just right reading level. These are books they are also familiar with so that they can spend all of their independent time working on a new strategy. As we read books in small guided reading group, they will be added to each child's individual bag. Once they have 5 books in their bag, we will start rotating out old books for new books.  

 

Benefits to my students

Each student would be able to have their own bag of books that they can use outside of their guided reading group. The bags would contain up to 5 different titles. These would be books that they have had intensive reading instruction on. As they become better readers, they will continue to add new books to their baggie. All students would be able to practice new reading strategies regardless of their reading ability. Every student will be challenged because the books would be at their instructional reading level.
We currently have 2 reading kits that are shared with 6 kindergarten teachers (over 100 students). There are six reading books per lesson. It is very difficult for us to use the program as designed since we have a limited number of kits available. I would like to have a kit for my class so that my students can get the maximum result from the reading program.  

 

Describe the Students

I have a very energetic and inquisitive class. All of my students are eligible for free breakfast and free lunch. For five of my students, English is not the language spoken at home. I have two students with severe health issues and are performing below grade level. Four of my students did not attend preschool and this is their first exposure to school. I have a wide range of abilities. I have some students already reading level A books. I also have some students who are working on recognizing and naming the letters in their name. 

 

Budget Narrative

One Jan Richardson Literacy Footprints Reading Kit contains lesson plans for each book title. There are 6 student reading books for each title. Along with the reading books there are vocabulary cards, alphabet books and many other resources. The books and lessons range from non readers all the way up to 2nd grade readers. I would be able to reach all the different levels in my classroom.
