Mrs. Larkin from Ormond Beach FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Larkin's Leaders Love Reading!

My students need engaging books to encourage independent reading. The Sunshine State Readers stimulate their desire to read and allow them to make text to self-connections​.

My Students

My 4th-grade students are ready and eager to begin a new school year. My class of 20 students is composed of varied learning abilities.

Many students do not have access to books at home, nor are able to visit the public library and really establish a love for reading!

We are eager to add an entire set of Sunshine State Readers to our classroom library. With the higher demand for​ writing in fourth grade, we hope to carry our love of reading into our writing!

My Project

My students love to read and get SO excited when another school year begins and a whole new set of Sunshine State Readers becomes available!

These books are truly engaging and motivate my young readers to dig into a great book!

When students are finished reading one of the books and they pass the assessment, they can earn a brag tag to celebrate their accomplishment​!

The readers will also be used to increase reading stamina and real engagement with a chapter book. In addition, silent reading also allows students to become independent thinkers. We also hope to increase our writing skills as research shows that great readers become better writers!
