Ms. Finn from Middleburg FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Little Learners Love Leveled Literature!

Help me give my students engaging, grade-level, non-fiction books to inspire a love of reading as they research and learn about the things that interest them, without being limited by their lower reading level.

My Students

Despite a community with over fifty percent, low-income families, our kids are ready, willing and able to face any challenge and love to demonstrate their learning through their work everyday.

With our new Montessori program, my classroom and outdoor learning environment will inspire students to explore, create, discover and develop a life-long love of learning.

By focusing on the whole child with the adult serving as a guide to their learning, my kids are able to dive deeply into those areas that they want to study. Then, by following their lead, I can integrate their lessons with materials they're excited about and use those subjects as the basis of everything from reading, to writing, to math, and science. Each child has a learning path all their own and they love it! (So do I.)

My Project

Many of my mixed-grade Montessori classroom are struggling readers. They want to be able to read, and study, and research like the higher readers, but we don't currently have non-fiction books on a level they can master.

When the books are on their level, they not only become better readers, but better LEARNERS as they read and research things that they are truly interested in.

Children are so interested in learning about science and animals in particular. These books will feed their love of learning while supporting their reading development at the same time. They'll learn to love reading as much as they love science!
