Fountas and Pinnell Literacy Classroom material
Statement from Matt Townsley, Director of Instruction and Technology:
Students in grades K-6 are currently using eight-year old reading materials. During the next three years, we will be purchasing Fountas and Pinnell Literacy Classroom material (http://www.fountasandpinnell.com/fpc/). This material will include 200 titles per classroom to be used in a "guided reading" model. Fountas and Pinnell will provide 200 titles per classroom that are within the grade level span. As a district, we want to provide teachers with resources below and above grade level reading spans in order to enable teachers access to text meeting the diverse needs of all readers. The district is committing $5,000 towards books and we are asking the community to consider matching $5,000 through the Solon Education Foundation.
Superintendent Davis Eidahl is excited about this project, "I am thrilled to provide teachers with access to books that will enable ALL students the opportunity to read books they enjoy and are at their current reading level."
Donate $25 or more towards the $5,000 community goal.
Please note: A 6% handling fee will be deducted from your donation.
