Ms. Manning from Dallas Center IA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I See Sam! Books I Can Read by Myself!

Help me give my students good decodable books. They are very hard to find and these build upon skills learned at a slow enough pace to build mastery. The stories are engaging and the students feel success!

My Students

Growing readers need the best quality texts! My school serves a diverse range of learners, ethnicities, languages, and income levels. I believe that is one of the best things about our school!

Our school family helps each other learn and grow together to succeed in our missions, goals, and be our best selves!

Our kids set goals, action plans, and see results. They have ownership in their own learning and it shows! Thank you for considering to help educate our kids!

My Project

These decodable books will get real books in beginning and growing readers hands over many years to come!

My kids need systematic explicit instruction on how to decode words and read sight words and these books are the best bang for the buck!

I want to get the "I See Sam" Set 1 and Set 2. It will give me 5 copies of 27 titles in each set. Along with kids being able to read all of the words without guessing, the storylines and characters are engaging and are great for retelling. These books are from the company: Academic Success for All Learners.
