Learning to Read with Leveled Reading Books!

My students need leveled reading books to read in small reading groups in kindergarten! These books are specially designed to help students learn how to read.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

In Ms. Henrici's kindergarten, we are learning to read... YAY!!! BUT.....we do not have enough books to use in our classroom! Help us learn how to read by donating leveled reading books!

My classroom is made up of 22 students who are all learning how to read in kindergarten!

We are in an expanding school and now since we have added 6 classrooms, we do not have enough books to share throughout the classrooms! These books would be books that we keep in our room and could read at anytime!

My Project

In kindergarten we are learning how to read and learning to read takes a lot of practice! Leveled reading books are designed to help beginning readers learn how to read by using decodable text and predictable patterns. Many of my students are English language learners and are already learning how to read at age five or six! We want to continue our journey reading and are hoping to get more leveled reading books for our own classroom!

The more you read, the more things you will know.

The more that you learn, the more places you'll go. -Dr. Seuss By donating these books to our classroom, you will give the gift of reading to many children in my classroom for years to come!
