Ravenous and Ready Readers Need Your Help!

My students need updated books to increase their reading comprehension and fluency. These books will appeal more to students and the book bins will help to level them.

My Students

Each day my students read and we are in need of new titles that will appeal to their preferences. Students are reading books that are at their reading level and this helps to build their confidence. These books will help to increase student motivation as well as their reading comprehension.

My students are in fifth grade and working to become ravenous readers.

They love choosing their own books and being able to read them on their own. My classroom is full of students that want to learn and the more choices they have the more motivated they are to learn. At my school, we team teach, so that means that I am lucky enough to have 50 kids throughout the day. These additional resources will help to ensure we have enough choices for both classes.

My Project

These materials will be used on a daily basis in our classroom. Students participate in Reader's Workshop and these materials will help to match students with books that they are interested in reading as well as ones that are at their reading level. When students are matched with books that are just right for them, it helps to build confidence, fluency, and comprehension.

My students continue to grow each day and these donations will helps to enhance their learning.

My goal is to create lifelong learners as well as students who can not only read, but truly understand what they are reading. These donations will enhance their ability to build words and vocabulary. The students' lives will be better because they will have more choices to peak their interest and motivate them to keep reading.
