Mrs. Rogers from Georgetown TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Book-A-Day Keeps the Doctor Away

Help me give my students a #classroombookaday. They will get to listen to books like "President Taft is Stuck in the Bath", a literacy nonfiction picture book about President Taft. Read aloud books help grow fluency and comprehension!

My Students

Do you remember your elementary school teacher reading books aloud? Do you remember being inspired by their voice? I love to read aloud to my students every day. I want to get more stories in to the hand of my students. Though we have a school library and I have a personal classroom library for student access, most of my students only access to books is at school. My students need a variety of books as they have reading abilities between K and 5th grade.

Pictures books are a great way to bridge gaps between students of a variety of reading abilities.

My students have conversations about content as well as conventions when reading fluency isn't a bump in the road. When my students sit to listen to books read aloud, they are all engaged. Even my most struggling students are inspired to ask questions and have conversations about the books.

My Project

I am looking to provide my students with a variety of books. I would like to have a new book for my students everyday. I have selected 50 read aloud books with a variety of topics. I have selected multicultural, gender, growth mindset, fiction, nonfiction, historical, as well as extracurricular topics.

Students don't just need reading, writing, math, and science, they need social emotional learning as well and these books bring that to them.

Students grow personally through conversations about strong characters in these stories. There is no limit to the lessons that can be taught and learned through reading good literature.
