Grant Category: Literacy
Funding Goal: $500.00
Students will have access to current, ability appropriate books to use in class as well as check out for the evening to read at home. Just like the Redbox DVD checkout, this would be a cart with books for kids to check out.
There is a huge need (both in the classroom and at home) for the learners in my classroom to have access to current books on their level to enhance the literacy program and practice skills taught in class. 86% of the 21 students in my homeroom receive free or reduced meals. Of those students, 78% are reading below grade level as of October
