The vision of Read2Win is to match a local church, business, or community stakeholder with every elementary school serving students in Tarrant County by providing a caring reading coach for every 1st grader needing help increasing their reading skills.
Kids Hope Arborlawn UMC Success
My student and I have built a successful relationship, and each week we look forward to Thursday. He is focused, and realizes he is moving forward with his abilities. Writing has definitely been an asset. Each week he is able to build his phonics practice to write sentences that he takes pride in reading to me.
We briefly share what is going on in our lives, and talk about our families. The best reward was when he said, “My mom said to thank you for coming to help me”. He is going to soar! I am proud to be a Read2Win Coach, come to J.T. Stevens, and work with my student.
Reading with my Read2Win student each Monday has been a highlight of my week. The curriculum is engaging and fun for the student, and I have loved watching his confidence grow. Right before winter break, he had a huge breakthrough in his reading skills and he is not looking back!
Read2Win met my student where he was and gently challenged him each week to build his skills, without overwhelming and shutting him down. I am confident that by the end of the year, he will be on grade level with his reading skills.
