Ms. W. from Bowling Green KY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Picture It: Reading with Graphic Novels

My students need a variety of graphic novel series to hook my reluctant readers, as well as, to offer my emerging readers engaging texts!

My Students

When asked, "What does our classroom need?" my 1st and 2nd graders responded, "More graphic novels!" My students know that graphic novels are THE most expensive genre of books: ink-heavy the books require thick pages and heavy binding...making the price skyrocket.

This 1st and 2nd-grader inspired project gives my students access to a variety of graphic novels and texts that encourage my reluctant readers and bridge the gap between "picture books" and "chapter books."

I am a fifth-year teacher with 26 amazing 1st and 2nd grade friends. We are so curious and excited about learning. We love hugging, singing, reading silly books, and being active. I need your help.

My Project

The best way to become a better and more fluent reader is to read MORE! From making inferences, identifying text features, noting the development of characters, and identifying theme within a text - these highly-engaging texts will provide my students the opportunity to put their learning into action. Applying the 'skills' we have learned this school year to graphic novels will build my students' confidence in their reading ability. These graphic novels with be fantastic learning resources in our unit of study, as well as, highly sought after additions of our classroom library.

Picture-heavy, graphic novels make reading accessible for ALL my students, as well as, foster a community of readers who become attached to characters and series.

These graphic novels will engage, support, and motivate my struggling readers. I teach because I love kids, and I believe learning is beautiful. I want students leaving my classroom knowing that they are dearly loved and that reading is wonderful. Your donation will develop my students' desire to read!
