Mrs. Abondolo from Winston Salem NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Oh the Places We’ll Go!

My students need these books to practice fluency and comprehension skills. I would use these leveled books during my Guided reading block to differentiate instruction and help my students grow as readers.

My Students

I work in a Title I school with the best Kindergarten students in all the world! All of the students at our school receive free breakfast and lunch every day. My students love school and are eager to come and learn. I’m excited to give them access to materials and tools they might not have access to at home to help them be their very best! Thank you so much for your help and support for my sweet little Kinders!

My Project

I am looking to expand my guided reading library in order to have a variety of good books to expose my Kindergarten students to. I want them to grow as readers and to learn to love books as much as I did when I was a kid. I want them to build good fluency and comprehension skills, and confidence in themselves, while also discovering the joys of a good story. These leveled reader sets will enable me to put books in my students’ hands that they can successfully read and enjoy. I can also use these books for follow-up writing activities, sight word recognition, and oral language skills with my ELL learners. I’m excited for all the many ways these books will benefit my students!
