Mrs. Eilenstine from Conway MO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning to Read with King Series and Other Readers!

My Students

My young students enjoy reading books. New leveled readers will make such a positive difference in our guided reading lessons. With a variety of books, each child will be able to read a book based on their level and interest.

I have an amazing group of students in my Kindergarten class.

Our small school is in a rural area with 64 percent of students on the "free and reduced" lunch program. However, the students in my class are excited to be in school and are ready to learn despite their families' low socioeconomic status. I believe ALL students can learn! I want to provide a variety of learning experiences for them and help them develop a love for learning.

My Project

I believe the new King Series books from Townsend Press will be a great addition to our classroom library. The stories are based on interesting subjects for young children. The other sets of leveled readers will also keep the students engaged as they read. All the books have vibrant and exciting illustrations. I strive to provide engaging activities and lessons during guided reading time and I know I will be able to accomplish this by using the requested leveled readers. My students will learn to increase their fluency, comprehension, and phonemic awareness skills.

Literacy is the most important subject for young children.

The students in my class all read at different levels. By providing them with several choices of leveled readers, they will be able to develop comprehension skills and strategies; but most importantly....a love for reading! Thank you for your consideration.
