Sight Word Flash Cards (August)

THE TASK

Create bright, fun, sight word flashcards for first-grade students, at under-resourced schools, who are behind on their reading level.

THE RECIPIENT

We have partnered with TutorMate, a national, virtual reading tutoring company. The sight word flash cards will be delivered to TutorMate who will deliver them to the schools in the most need around the country. 

THE REASON

A first-grader has a small reading gap, and reaching them early is proven to be the most effective way to improve their reading. TutortMate will distribute your flashcards to students who need them most!
