7th Grade Book-Lovers...Looking for More Books to Love!
My students need high interest, low-level books to fill our library!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Have you ever been in the mood to read, but not been able to find anything interesting? That's how many of my 7th graders are currently feeling. The desire to read is growing, but they look through the library and have either read all of the books or struggle to find a book on their level.
I work with an awesome group of 7th grade students in the South Bronx.
Some of them have been classified with Learning Disabilities and Speech and Language Impairments. They are currently far below grade level in reading. While these have been challenges along the way, they are resilient and wildly curious about all things around them. They also have a crazy appetite for books.
My 7th graders started out the year feeling very unsure about themselves as readers. They were reluctant to read aloud in class and uncomfortable to read for sustained periods of time. In the time we've spent working on their reading and understanding of phonics, this has started changing. They now look forward to chances where they can read and imitate a news reporter's voice while they do it. They look forward to days where they can just read quietly with a new book.
I'm asking for your help in donating brand new books to our classroom to allow them to keep this love of learning and joy in reading up.
Having new materials will give them something to be excited about and expose them to new worlds. We need your support!
