My Students

I have a classroom full of enthusiastic and active first graders! They love to move around, explore, and read fun books. They love playing computer games and competing against themselves and each other.

Most of the students in our classroom come from low-income families and many are English Language Learners.

We have 37 native countries and 24 native languages in our school. It would be wonderful to provide these students with more materials and opportunities that will help them succeed inside and outside of the classroom.

My Project

My students all love to read and independent reading is an important part of their day. Many of my kids are currently struggling to read on grade level, and they require texts that are just right for their independent reading level.

These books will provide my students with appropriately leveled readers that are also engaging and support their learning in other subjects, such as science.

Having both nonfiction and fiction leveled readers will support my students as they grow this year.

By adding these books to our classroom, my students will be able to both practice their reading skills and build their reading independence.
