Help me give my students a set of books for literature circles in my classroom.
I am a reading specialist/teacher. I teach at a low-income/Title I school district, and my students face several challenges both in and out of the classroom. This year we were struck by Hurricane Harvey and our school was really not damaged, but the homes of many of my students were.
Despite the hardships they have faced, they are resilient and spirited learners making their way back.
They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able personally to solve the many challenges they face outside of school. However, I can certainly make a powerful impact on the eight hours they spend here at school every day.
Each nine weeks in my classroom students have the option to choose from a selection of books and read in small groups to complete a classroom project.
I would like to get some new, high interest books for the students to get them actively engaged in reading and learning.
They say that if you don't enjoy reading, you just haven't read the right book. If we can make our students life long readers, it will help them become life long learners as well. These options will encourage students to read and show them that reading can be fun and interesting.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
