Mrs. Solis from Minneapolis MN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Early Chapter Books for Amazing Readers

Help me give my students engaging early chapter books, like Zoey and Sassafras and Dragon Masters. These books may be little, but they will have a big impact.

My Students

My students have come from many different parts of the world including Ecuador, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and the United States. They come with tenacity, creativity, and a wide variety of experiences and gifts. We work hard every day as scholars, artists, critical thinkers, and friends.

At our school, 96% of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, and 92% of the students are students of color.

The majority of my students are learning English as a second or third language. These students have the capacity to achieve greatness.

My Project

Students who don't see themselves reflected in books are less likely to see themselves as readers. The characters in the books of this project are diverse and reflect the diverse identities of my students.

When students have access to a wide variety of texts in their classroom they are more likely to read on their own, at home, during class, on the bus, anywhere they can get a chance!

These books will help ignite readers and give them book series that they can enjoy during our daily independent reading time.

With access books in their classroom, students become readers. Readers have a deeper relationship with books when they can identify the types of books they like, find characters they connect with and have constant conversations with their friends about what they are reading. Research shows that students who talk about books with their peers are more likely to read on their own and develop an identity as a reader. My students will share what they are reading with their classmates. We will be a community of readers!
