Mrs. B. from Chapel Hill NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Literacy Resources for Skill Practice

My students need copies of quality literature to supplement our reading program. The 13 books selected will help them connect good literature to the skills they need to master in 4th grade.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach 4th grade in a school with a very diverse population. We have many ELL and at-risk families,

There are many skills necessary for success in 4th grade and one way to teach these skills is through literature. My students do not always have access to the literature that would help teach the skills they need.

The 12 books that I am requesting will allow me to introduce quality literature to my students while I am teaching the essential reading/writing skills that they need to master in 4th grade.

Your help will make it possible for my students to hear good literature in the classroom. This literature will give them access to the tools they need to be successful in the classroom
