Help My Scholars Become Better Readers

My students need 8 sets of leveled books to help enhance their reading skills to become well rounded students.

My Students

Reading is essential in the education of today's youth. My students eyes light up when I bring in new books. This is something their parents cannot provide for them at home. They rely on me for exciting new material to dive into.

My middle school students are searching for their identities in the world.

Who am I? It is my job to guide them to a path of excellence. I have established in the classroom a silent reading time that every student looks forward to daily. Reading is a great way for my students to enhance their vocabulary and gain comprehension skills. These students live in a low poverty area where school is considered a warm and safe place for them. Books can make a difference in the lives of these kids. They need inspiration to set their goals high and reach for the stars.

My Project

While conferencing with my scholars, it is amazing to hear how they connect to what they are reading. Some may connect with a character, or a conflict that is occurring in the story. Whatever the case may be, it is books that make these students smile. Reading has become a priority in their everyday lives. A variety of new books will only motivate them to read more.

Thank you for taking the time to read this project.

Your donations will influence the lives of 56 young adults. Each and every student will smile when they see your generosity. You are truly making a difference.
