Mrs. W. from Griffin GA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Models Wanted for Read Aloud

My students need 13 read-aloud books that we can use to model different comprehension strategies that they will use in a comprehension center throughout the year.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Do you remember being asked to do something that you had never done before? My students want to hear great read aloud stories that I can use to model how to use different comprehension strategies. Then they can use those strategies independently through out the year.

My school has a high percentage of students who receive free and reduced lunches.

Many of the students have been displaced from their homes due to a tornado that recently ripped through the community. It is rare to keep more than half of my students for the entire year due to the frequent withdrawals and enrollments throughout the year. We pour into them as much as we can for as long as we have them. We reach out to our families during the holidays with any needs that need to be met. We have reached out during the past few weeks to help provide what we can that was taken during the tornado. We are a Title 1 school, but funds get absorbed quickly each year for needs at school.

My Project

Having a diverse library of read aloud books will enable me to model the many different comprehension strategies that the students will use in their comprehension center for the year. The strategies that these books will cover are making connections with the text, questioning, and retelling and summarizing. Walking the students through each one of these strategies after reading the book together will make the strategies easier for them to use independently in a center. Being able to use these strategies independently will empower the students to become stronger readers.

These books will make a powerful impact on the reading development of the students.

Helping them to be able to understand what they are reading will impact their success in other subjects such as math and science.
