Ms. Webber from Poughkeepsie NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Leveled Libraries Are the Best!

My students need to have daily access to reading materials that are on their level. The leveled library will give the children the ability to achieve and maintain their grade level reading level.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, I see that my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom.

The students in my room are in need of a leveled library in our classroom.

Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and all receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day.

My Project

My students are in an inner city school district. All of my students receive free breakfast and lunch. Due to budget issues, our school does not have a full time librarian.

A leveled library in our classroom will help us achieve our grade level reading goals.

My students need to have daily access to reading materials that are on their level. The students enjoy reading books on their level and monitoring their progress. The leveled library will give the children the ability to achieve and maintain their grade level reading level. They will be able to monitor their own progress and continue with their motivation to read.
