Ms. Hughes from Pell City AL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Decodable Storybooks - Breaking the CODE and Reading!

Help me give my students some fun books on their "just right" level! This mixture of modern (super heroes) and classic (Frog & Toad) book sets will hit the sweet spot - decodable and darn fun! :)

My Students

I teach in a Title I school in central Alabama. My students are a mix of all abilities, including those who receive services through the special education program. I teach a self-contained class, which means students spend the majority of their day with me.

My students are a delightful crew!

We love to get up on our feet with hands-on learning opportunities! Whether it's reading, science, grammar, or anything else, we love to be in motion! I love the curiosity these kids exhibit every day. They make each moment an adventure!

My Project

My first graders are really growing as readers! These books are on the "just right" level for them: they are based on phonics skills we're learning, so students can practice their "de-coding" skills as they work to read independently!

Because practice can become tiresome, I selected books that these students will LOVE!

This project will provide my students with tons of FUN titles including Justice League, Plants Versus Zombies, Splat the Cat, Frog and Toad, and so much more! My students won't want to put their new books down, and they'll feel SO EMPOWERED to get their hands on books they can read all on their own.
