Ms. S. from Austin TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Inspire Boys to Read with Batman's Help

My students need 6 books in the Batman chapter book series.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Students at our school are working hard to improve their reading skills.

Many of our students are English Language Learners, and they struggle at times to read on grade level.

One way to support students as they work to become stronger readers is to provide them with high-interest books in a series. Series books provide support for growing readers by providing familiar characters and text format.

My Project

Students will be able to check out these new Batman series books directly from their classroom library. Students will be able to read books in class as well as check them out for home reading. These Batman books are also a great introduction to students who are transitioning from picture books to chapter books.

Thank you so much for considering a donation to our class.

Your gift will help inspire students to read more, and nurture a lifelong love of reading in many young people. Your donation will truly make a difference in the lives of these hardworking students.
