My Students

My class consists of twenty super readers! We love to read, but are in need of more modern and up to date literature. We live in rural community, and our students can experience the world through a differentiated classroom library. In order to produce well-rounded and productive future adults, we need every possible opportunity. We hope that you can help us in our quest for an enriching library. You could be the difference in a child's life. Will you consider donating?

My Project

Do you remember the excitement each day when you were given the opportunity to pull out a book, get comfortable, and read? Our students get that same opportunity each and every day during reading workshop. However, our classroom libraries need your support. We need a variety of texts that cover different genres, levels, and topics for our students. Every day during reading workshop the students are taught a mini-lesson as a whole group. Then they are given plenty of time to engage independently in reading a variety of texts while the teacher conferences one-on-one or with small groups.

Having a variety of texts to read during reading workshop is imperative to helping our students grow as readers and writers.

The texts requested within this project were handpicked to meet the needs of the students within our classroom, their levels, and their interests. With your support, our students will have a variety of books to choose from on a daily basis to meet their needs as they grow as readers.
