Ms. Smith from Eureka CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I'll Read to You and You Read to Me

My students need 12 partner read aloud books to practice fluency and expressive reading.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My third graders have been begging me for time to read with a friend. The problem? Finding books for them to share that make taking turns simple and fun.

A solution has been found with Mary Hoberman's I'll Read to You, You Read to Me books. Funny, silly and scary (what all 3rd graders love) books with short stories designed for two readers!

These 12 copies of Hoberman's four titles from her I'll Read to You series make it possible for each child to find a partner and share a book with a friend! Little do they know, while they're having such fun they're also practicing comprehension, fluency and expressive reading!

Your help will ensure that my students continue to love to read. We all learn so much more when we're having fun doing it. Reading with a friend provides the perfect experience!
