Mr. Klossner from North Port FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Klossner Klassroom Library

Help me give my students the start of a classroom library and class sets of books to allow them to learn reading comprehension, vocabulary and reading stamina through novels.

My Students

My students are at a wide range of learning levels, especially when it comes to their reading levels. They are lovers of reading, and look to pick up a book when they have any free moment.

My students are also part of a Title I school, and many lack the ability to have their own libraries at home.

This project will allow me to have books within the classroom that will stretch their reading comprehension and vocabulary, while they enjoy learning.

My Project

This project will begin as a leveled book study with the "I Survived" series of books. The students will receive books in their level and we will discuss and build the students reading comprehension and vocabulary. I also want to purchase 3 other small group sets of books to push my higher students to the next level.

This library has various reading levels, to help match the differentiation that is needed in my room.

The students will enjoy reading the I Survived series and learning some historical events while building their reading skills. I also have books in this project to pique other students' interests.
