Mrs. Flowers from Smiths Station AL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning to Love to Read!

My students need more exposure to fiction and nonfiction text as well as leveled reading books.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach at a Title I school in Alabama. My students are learning to "love to read". They come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with 70% of our students receiving free or reduced lunches.

It's all about the students.

I consider my classroom as my mission field. Most of my students don't have an ideal home life. My goal is for them to want to come to school, take responsibility for their own education, and feel safe and secure in our classroom environment.

My Project

These materials will benefit my 5th graders tremendously. I whole heartedly believe exposing my students to more fiction and especially nonfiction text will enhance their reading comprehension, fluency, grammar, and writing skills. I want to offer a variety of reading text to entice all of my students to read. I want my students to love to read!

My students need daily exposure to leveled nonfiction and fiction text.

These resources will help my students in literature circles, independent novel centers, and small group instruction. Having the leveled readers will allow them the exposure to text that will greatly increase their reading skills at every level.
