Building Strong Readers!

My students need leveled readers to help them become stronger readers! Our classroom library is severely lacking and I would love to add some variety for my students to enjoy.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students face challenges both in and out of the classroom that often times seem never-ending. Despite their ongoing struggles, they come to school eager to learn and ready to face any new obstacles in school. I strive, as their teacher, to provide ample opportunities to succeed and get the education they deserve. Learning should be enjoyable and full of memorable experiences; I aim to provide that for my students, regardless of the myriad challenges we face.

My Project

I have requested leveled readers ranging from level D-I. These are some of the levels that I am lacking. My students read every day, and our library is a mess! The bins that I am requesting are already filled with books at that level and are labeled. This will help my students to be able to independently pick best-fit books!

I want to make sure my students have exactly what they need, and have access to just that!

My students read each day during literacy centers. This past year I noticed many children were a bit lost when it came to selecting books, and having books that were just right for them. With these leveled readers, I am confident my students will be selecting and reading just right books all year long!
