Mrs. Reynolds from Attica IN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Get Books Into Hands of Young Readers

My students need books in their hands to increase their love for reading and to experience more success in reading.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Every day in class, we do Daily 5 rotations. One of those rotations is Read to Self. The students have their own book boxes with 5-8 good fit books. Good fit books need to be on the student's reading level and they need to interest the student. I want my students to dive into their book boxes be

I teach in a second grade classroom with 18 students.

Our school is high poverty. We have over 50% of our students on free and reduced lunches. A lot of the students in my classroom do not have extra books at home to help develop a love for reading. I want to be able to foster this love and encourage students to read at home. I will be able to let students check out books and take them home to read at home.

My Project

I love books! I want to share this love for reading with my students. These leveled books will go into my classroom library for use at school and at home. The students will be able to select books both fiction and nonfiction that interest them. They will also be able to take Accelerated Reader tests on most of the books they choose.

Donations for this project will help get more books in the hands of my students.

There will be more choices for them and more topics of books to select from. Students will enjoy reading not only at school, but the love for reading will carry over into their homes.
