Join Karli in support of Pratham USA Readathon 2015 (The Village School)
Every book I read helps educate a child in India
I am participating in Pratham USA Readathon 2015 because I want to help less fortunate children attend Pratham schools and learn to read, write and count well. Pratham is a not-for-profit organization that is educating millions of kids in India since it was founded in 1995. It is very well known and has won many international awards for its work in child literacy and education. Pratham USA raises funds and awareness in the US for this important cause. Please visit www.prathamusa.org for more information.
Pratham needs only $25 to educate one child for one whole year. I love to read because when I read, I can learn a lot, meet new people, discover new places, find new ideas, improve my vocabulary, use my imagination and never get bored! I am so happy that with your donation, my reading will help many other children. I am going to read 5 books by the end of October. Please support my Readathon by making a donation to Pratham USA today.
I recently read the short story “Thank You Ma’am” by Langston Hughes to my 6th grade English class. I have read this story every year to my students for 14 years. I absolutely love sharing this story and introducing a new group of students to it. I enjoy reading aloud to my students because I get to watch their reaction as the story comes alive and off the paper.
