Teacher Rutkauskas from Pasadena MD is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Literacy Project

My Students

Students have several opportunities to visit the classroom library during the school day.

The classroom has grade 2 students within a comprehensive school setting.

The diverse group of students are learning to love books! Students have limited access to a classroom library, so the hope is to stock the library with high interest, leveled readers to entice students!

My Project

This project requests book bin sets, Levels J-M, Grades 1-3. The students will have a few opportunities each day to visit the classroom library, beginning when they arrive. Our mornings are NO WORKSHEETS, and require students to read, write, or use technology. With these book sets, students will be able to self select leveled books based upon interest.

I want to instill a love for learning, and remind students they can read for pleasure!

With these leveled book sets students will have more options to choose from and will have books to support their independent reading levels.
