Ms. Courtney from Elizabethton TN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I Can't Decide What to Read!

My students need high interest lower level books for exposure to rich texts. I have picked some books for independent reading, as well as guided reading to help build my classroom library.

My Students

I teach at a very low-income rural area school. My students have very limited background experiences and limited access to books. Students come to my room for 45 minutes of extra reading instruction each day. I would like to expand my classroom library, which is very outdated and not the appropriate levels for my students. I would also like to do some group studies on novels with some of the students. My students deserve a library with new choices!

My Project

My students come from a very low-income community, with very limited exposures to rich texts. Many of my students have never even visited the public library. My older students often do not like to read in front of their peers, as their reading levels are so far behind grade level.

I would like to provide high-interest low-level rich texts to my students to help them fall in love with reading.

I have chosen some books for students to read independently or with audio. I have also chosen some for guided reading. Your help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
