Mrs. Suppes from Rock Springs WY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Give the Gift of Reading!

Help me give my students access to books they need to grow their skills. These books are specifically published for Hi-interest, Lo-reading levels and allow for middle school readers to learn to love reading, including CLASSICS!

My Students

Hello! I have a dynamic group of students in need of access to quality books, including classics, to grow their vocabulary and improve their reading skills in order to close gaps and to be prepared for high school and life beyond. Reading skills can be all over the place and, like all of us, interests are as varied as the stars in the sky. In order to meet their needs, a classroom library must be just a diverse.

Every year the student names may change, but the need remains the same.

The students show up every year to improve their skills and grow, but the gaps are always there and it's my job to help with the ones I'm lucky enough to have.

My Project

Picture this: you are sitting in a classroom and want to participate with the rest of the class, but you just don't know how to do what everyone else is doing. Students who need to continue growing their reading skills feel like this more often than they should, and this project is designed to help give more access to reading material that is Hi-Interest and Lo-Level.

Helping to provide sets of books for group reading instruction is the key to this project.

Students in middle school aren't "little kids" any more. They are developing interests that have to be met in different ways, and these specially published books meet those needs. Thank you for considering supporting this project and developing readers.
