Mrs. Johnson from Hempstead NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Helping Special-Needs Students Succeed!

My students need 12 sets of leveled nonfiction readers in various levels to address many developmental levels in my classroom.

  • $588 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students come to school everyday eager and willing to learn. They face daily challenges in reading comprehension and fluency.

My students are a wonderful group of children.

They enjoy school and work very hard in all academic areas. They attend public school. They are always on the lookout for new books to use in their small-group ELA centers. They make such a tremendous effort to improve their reading and writing skills.

My Project

I am requesting leveled non-fiction readers so that my students can receive differentiated instruction on their level. These supplies will make such a difference in my student's daily activities. I will be able to create small group learning centers and they will be able to partner-up and read together. These resources will help my students understand author's purpose, sequencing, inferencing, details and drawing conclusions.

This project is so important to me.

It will make such a HUGE impact on my students. They will be so appreciative and thankful. I will also be able to use these books year after year. Please consider us!!
