Mrs. Noffsinger from Wilmington IL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Book Clubs Without Limitations

My students need current, interesting books on CDs, printed copies of the books, and a headphone splitter to listen to the stories together. While I am working individually with students, others will be learning!

My Students

My classroom is filled with bright, energetic, and eager-to-learn third grade students. I teach at a low-income/high poverty rural school district, and our resources are quite limited. Due to limited financing, I plan and implement an afternoon physical education class. Daily, I attempt to creative, budget-friendly ways to keep the learning and growing alive and engaging!

In order to boost our reading fluency and comprehension, our class needs books on C.Ds and a headphone splitter to listen to audio books.

Students will have the opportunity to choose their own novels to listen to while following along with their own print copy. Having a splitter will allow for reading groups to enjoy the same book at the same time. My students are eager to learn, and love learning together. In addition, listening to appropriate fluency and enunciation will help students to improve their comprehension and expand their vocabulary. Books on C.D. will allow students who lack confidence in their reading skill to choose a more challenging book to match their interest level. Our class will greatly enjoy having books on C.D. as an option!

My Project

Students will be allowed to choose a novel at their interest level, and listen to it with other students, while also following along with their own texts. A more current novel selection will entice the students.

These novels and CDs will allow for an increase in the sudents' fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary.

Students also will not feel timid about their own reading levels, because they will not have to read aloud. Instead, they'll be able to listen, relax, and learn.

In addition, students will discuss, share ideas, ask questions, and enjoy being part of their own "Book Club!" Let's continue to strengthen their love of reading!
