I am a fourth grade teacher on the south side of Chicago. I am asking for some read-along books for my class. My students are very excited about reading. My students love reading chapter books. We read aloud every day at school. It would be real nice if all of my students had the opportunity to read the wonderful chapter books. With read-along books, everyone can have the opportunity. Whether students are good readers or struggling readers, they can enjoy read-along books. Unfortunately, the funds and supplies are in small amounts at my school. I am in need of four chapter book read-alongs for my students to enjoy. I work in a school that is 98% low income. My students are eager to read. You can help these students to become better readers. You can make a difference. I am asking for a 4th grade set of read-alongs for the class.
