Help me give my students some leveled readers and bins for independent reading in our Pre-K classroom!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students at my school are hardworking and eager to learn. They really enjoy read alouds and are eager to read independently. With a high ESOL population, books are important and valued. Having access to quality books is an essential resource for my students. Many of my students do not have access to leveled books at home and rely on the printable little books that I send home weekly. In the past two years I have implemented guided reading in the Pre-K classroom. A big part of guided reading is beginning to read independently. I see the joy when my students get to the place of reading independently and I would love to make them book bags so that they can practice with at home.
These books will help further increase the love of reading independently within the classroom. My students have worked hard to become early readers and when they get to the point of reading independently I do not have books on their levels.
Right now, I have a classroom library but I do not have leveled readers.
I do many read aloud to increase the daily reading but they are not reading independently. I would love a place where my students really enjoy and read independently books and magazines on their level! With the help of this project being funded students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.
