Mrs. Rapier from Leander TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Encouraging Young Readers

My Students

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you go." Dr. Seuss,

Do you remember when you first realized you could read?

Do you remember the feeling of pride and excitement? I teach a class of eager 1st graders who love to read. We just need the "right fit" books for all different level. Children learn at all different levels. I want all my children to have that opportunity through books on their level.

My Project

My students will use their leveled books during read to self. Leveled books will build their confidence in reading. It will also help to improve comprehension, fluency. We already have individual reading boxes. We just need the "right" book for each child.

This project will make a huge difference in children who lack the confidence in reading.

Children should be able to grow, learn and use their imaginations in books. My goal is for every child to build the love of reading.
