My Students

I have a diverse bunch of students that are excited about learning. During our morning meeting, I hear kids saying " I am happy because I am at school". They are always willing to participate in class. I love to see all their hands go up! They love to read. Every chance they get, students pull out a book. Every time I get to add a new book to our classroom library, they all want to be the first to read it!

My Project

My school district recently adapted a new curriculum that requires students to pick their own books at their level for lessons. I have gotten books from places for free or cheap, but it is difficult to find books for emergent level readers at these sales. Plus, some of the books at these places are not high interest books. The sets I have chosen will fill a gap in my class library. They will help provide books at levels I do not have.

Please help all my students be successful by providing me with these leveled reader sets.

These sets will help improve their reading, and help them love learning!
