Hungry Readers in Need of Great Books

My students need 2 sets of lower level books to read.

My Students

We are hungry! I work with below-grade level students. My 1st graders are hungry to become readers. Unfortunately, we don't have books at their level. We are not taking this challenge lightly. My students have pledged to read 400 books this year in conjunction with our Donor's Choose goal.

I have 6 first grade students.

We are from a small school in the upper Midwest. Our district does not have enough money to update the guided reading library. They are so excited to read and it breaks my heart that I don't have books to support them.

My Project

These 2 sets of leveled books will guide us on our quest. We will improve vocabulary, phonics, and comprehension. These levels will help students advance to the higher levels offered in our guided reading library. I can't wait to see the joy on their faces when we open our boxes of brand-new books!

Helping students is what teaching is all about.

I am driven to help struggling students close the gap, but am limited with my resources. Your donation today can make the difference tomorrow and help these students be successful for the rest of their lives. Thank you!
