Ms. Stokes from Charlotte NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Intensive Reading Group Needs Essentials!

My students need the nonfiction reading comprehension cards and eight write and wipe student markers to help practice reading nonfiction independently. We also need the the set of leveled nonfiction readers so that our intensive reading groups will have books to use that meet each child's reading level.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a third grade teacher at a high needs, low income school. I am teaching a small intensive reading group with a high number of ESL students who are having difficulty reading and understanding nonfiction texts.

We are in need of many resources, including nonfiction leveled books, so that our students can read on their correct reading level and feel successful.

These innovative book sets make it easy to build comprehension skills—even when students are reading at different levels! Each set covers the same topic at 3 grade-appropriate reading levels—with varied sentence lengths and vocabulary, but identical content—so students can build skills at just the right pace. The set includes 4 color-coded copies of each book, so they’re ideal for partner reading, small groups or individual practice. Each 12-book set also includes assessment cards to track students’ progress…and a helpful guide with differentiated instruction strategies.

Your help will ensure that my students are able to read nonfiction on their individual reading level and build comprehension skills while doing so.
