A Book a Day Keeps Illiteracy at Bay!

My students need books to enrich their education. We are consistently doing book studies and small group discussion for chapter summaries and comprehension. I currently do not have a class set of chapter books.

My Students

My school is a Title I school, so most of the students I teach are of low socioeconomic status. My students don't have access to the same resources that other students do in the county. I try to enrich their education with books and materials they don't have access to at home. My students are wonderful and are passionate about learning.

The students in my class are eager to learn but most lack the resources and home support to sufficiently meet the demands of the rigorous curriculum.

I believe that in order to meet these demands my class needs to have the same opportunities as students in other areas. DonorsChoose.org is a wonderful way to get the supplies and resources for my class.

My Project

Giving low-income students access to new books is an investment in their future. I will use this book, Frindle, to enrich the students' lives and make them better students for the future. For example, students will collaborate about the book and participate in student-centered book discussions, vocabulary lessons, and learn about the characters, setting, and theme of each book.

These donations will vastly improve the students' fluency and comprehension and prepare them to be active readers from here on.

I wouldn't be able to provide all my students their own book to read without the generous donations provided by this site.
