My classroom consists of students from various backgrounds, ranging vastly in socioeconomic, race, and culture. As a Title 1 School literacy has been an issue with closing the achievement gap. By being able to purchase classroom reading sets that are readily available for children to use I hope to close the gap even further. My goal is to purchase books that are readable by kindergarten students that can be placed in book baskets for reading and can allow me to set up a check out system so students are able to take decodable books home for a few days to practice reading. Our school's reading series is not designed to be used this way, but this is a need with which reading materials could assist.
