One of my favorite quotes about teaching reading comes from Richard Allington, "Kids not only need to read a lot but they need lots of books right at their fingertips. They also need books that entice them, attract them to reading."
This is the reason for this reading campaign. We need a plethora of books for children to read. Simply stated, books that they CAN and WANT to read. We know so much about how reading builds background knowledge, vocabulary, and comprehension. All of this is vitally important to reading development.
Please help me build our classroom library. With your support, I’ll be able to choose books that reflect the interests of every student in my class. Will you become a book sponsor? After all, Reading is FUNdamental!
Thank you for your support!
