Ms. Khan from Brooklyn NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Guided Reading Books to Learn and Grow!

My students need Guided Reading Collections: Level A, B, and C so they can achieve fundamental reading skills. The dry-erase boards will support them in writing their letters and words.

My Students

All of my students are English Language Learners- they are Bilingual Urdu students in Kindergarten. They are eager learners, curious about the world around them and ready to challenge themselves. A few my students have special needs.

My students come from immigrant backgrounds--all of them are Pakistani.

Their neighborhood is vibrant with Pakistani shops and restaurants. They let me know their favorite foods are biryani at home and pizza at school on Fridays. They are proud to speak in Urdu, yet confident to learn English.

My Project

My students are still practicing memorizing their letters and sounds and because they are English Language Learners, they need more individualized lessons. My Guided Reading groups is where the magic happens-- students are actively learning because students are placed in small reading groups based on their reading levels. Many of students are still in the beginning levels of reading, thus we need more Guided Reading books for Level A, B and C. I am having to ask students to share books or make copies because there are not enough books for each student.

Guided Reading books are essential in allowing students to learn how to read.

The more books they have access to, the more students will be able to learn and apply their reading skills. Using dry-erase boards will also be helpful in allowing these students to practice writing their letters and sounds to form words and sentences. If I can make reading and writing fun for them with these basic resources, they will grow up with the confidence to succeed in school.
