Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach 2 6th grade Study Skills(Remediation)reading classes (30 students)at a school that has about 61% of its students on free or reduced lunch program. The purpose of this class is to help the students become improve their scores on the NC End-of-Grade Reading test. In order to do that, they have to read. Our media center has not been funded for many years and the books that it does have are at higher reading levels than what my students are testing at. I have located a wonderful website called BookAdventure.com which has inspired many of my students to read. Using that website, we have been choosing books that they have tests for (students test on the computer and get immediate feedback). I have personally bought and donated close to 100 books this year to our media center for my students to use. The librarian has kept a shelf that only my students are allowed to check books off of, however, I am trying to build up the supply so that other teachers can also start using the books. I would like to get more so that my students and other low performing readers have a bigger variety of topics and levels to choose from. Thank you.
