Mrs. Stephenson from Langley AFB VA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Leveling Up With Leveled Readers

My students need leveled guided reading books to increase our reading skills and extra books to send home for students to read with their parents.

  • $460 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our Title I school serves many military families. We are a very transient school with families frequently moving in and out of the state and country. Our students often have one parent deployed or away working with the military.

My kindergartners are excited about class and have an innate need to learn all that they can absorb.

They come to school every day with excitement in their eyes, wondering what amazing things they will learn that day. Kindergarten teaches the foundation and gives the students opportunities to grow and become amazing adults. This is a very important year for all students.

My Project

My kindergartners love reading! Despite entering school with limited letters and sounds, they have worked hard to learn to read. Each one of my kindergartners now reads between a first and forth grade level.

My kids are too smart!

I have run out of books. We need harder books to read during guided reading in class so my students can continue to push themselves. We also need additional books to send home so students can show off their new reading skills to their parents.

Reading is the most essential skill learned in kindergarten. Thank you for helping us expand these skills.
