Mrs. Long from Martinsburg WV is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Future Fluent Leaders

My students need higher level texts to expand their reading levels and increase their reading fluency.

My Students

My classroom is full of talented and ambitious young minds! Each of my diverse students are diligent and work hard throughout the school day to succeed. I am so proud of all of the growth that I have witnessed in the first half of the school year.

I see so much potential within each and every one of my students.

With this said, I want to make sure ALL of my students are fluent readers by the time they reach middle school.

As their teacher, my goal is to make sure that I can supply them with the materials and the resources to do just that! I want to offer my students a range of diverse and complex texts to build fluency and expand my student's reading levels.

My Project

Every day at school, we have two hours of reading instruction. One of the most exciting parts of this time frame for my students is independent reading time.

My students get so excited when they actually have a CHOICE of what they are reading!

With these materials, students will have the chance to engage in a quiet, yet profound interaction with the text.

I am excited to see where these books will take my students and am certain that this literacy donation will increase my student's reading levels. Books open several doors and will surely open the door to fluency with each and everyone of my students!
