Help Us Develop Our Love For Reading... We Have No Library

My students need leveled library books that are of high interest to increase their reading levels and their reading stamina!

My Students

Can you remember exactly when you started to love reading? It was probably after you read a book that really intrigued you and interested you. Well, my students aren't any different however unfortunately there are not enough books that are high-interest and on multiple reading levels to support this

My students are an exceptional bunch of kids.

They come to school each day ready and eager to learn. For many of them school is not just a place to learn, but it also what many of them would consider a place that feels like home. Our class has been together for three years. We have been together since 1st grade, and now the students are entering the 4th grade! They are kids who are eager to learn and become something amazing when they grow up. All of them have goals of one day going to college. They do not allow the outside influences of their environment to affect their learning and eagerness to learn. They are typical kids in an area which forces kids to grow up quickly. They laugh, have fun, tell stories, and socialize with their classmates.

My Project

My students will develop a strong love of reading because of they will have stories that not only interest them, but also have books that are on the correct independent reading levels that exists within my classroom. They will be able to utilize these books not only during reading, but also during science and social studies. They will be opened to a whole new world of reading that they never experienced before. They will also be able to improve their reading levels by working and focusing on their reading comprehension. Students should enjoy reading and develop a love for reading!

The donations to this project will make such an impact on my students.

They will have actual books to read that are on the correct reading levels. They will be able to choose from a variety of books to build not only their comprehension, but also their reading stamina. Students should be able to touch and feel books that are not worn, written in, missing pages, or destroyed. Our school doesn't have a library so these books would greatly impact students' outlook toward reading.
