Mrs. Van Natter from Oak Harbor WA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Guide Me Into Reading

My students need books. Not just any books, guided reading books. Ones that will help my students move along in their process of reading.

My Students

I have the honor of teaching an eccentric set of special education students. As a class they are eager to learn and enjoy working towards their education.

They all have their own range of abilities, and supports that they need to be successful.

As their teacher, I am consistently striving to provide them with new and improved ways to learn concepts and skills. They enjoy hands-on activities where they can be creative and showcase their own set of skills and personalities.

My Project

In my classroom, we have two different sets of books that we are currently living off of. Books from Goodwill, and books purchase by our wonderful PTA from the book fair.

While I am so grateful to have these books, my students cannot learn to read from these.

We need leveled readers to help transition my students from reading sight words, to books. They want to learn so bad, and try their best, I am just not equipped with the right resources to aid them in this area. We are constantly supplementing with printable books, but they are not enough.
