Mrs. Robinson from Wimauma FL is requesting books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Look! A Book! Hey! I Can Read and Learn Today!

My students need books to engage them in reading, while building their comprehension skills & vocabulary development. Reading books with non-fiction information from The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library is just what they need!

My Students

We are categorized as a Title 1 and Renaissance school because 96.5% of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch and over 90% of students are considered to be living in poverty. Half of our population is ELL. This year, because our reading scores on the state assessment (FSA) were one of the lowest 300 schools and our SAT scores in first and second grade dropped, we were also designated as an ERT (Extended Reading Time) school by the state. We have had an extra 30 minutes of reading added onto our daily schedule.

My students need books that will keep their interest while teaching them about informational topics.

My Project

This series of nonfiction books explores a wide range of subjects. They are written in rhyme and they feature the characters from The Cat in the Hat and introduce students to basic science concepts. Each book includes an index, glossary, and suggestions for further reading.

In choosing books from The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library, students will learn to read and read to learn.

Non-fiction text is difficult for our ELL population to tackle. Reading about unfamiliar topics using familiar characters will help them learn and retain the information. Students can read the books with The Cat in The Hat and be comfortable and enjoy learning throughout the reading process.
