Mrs. Torrez from Los Angeles CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Read with Me, ELD!

My students need these book series sets to keep them highly interested and motivated to keep them engaged and read more. These books will help my students expand their love for reading and seek new adventures.

My Students

I teach a group of resilient and spunky EL learners, who are students whose primary language is not English. These students come from low income families and need help in creating a love for learning. These students are lacking the resources of books to engage them and spark their interest in reading.

My English Language learning students are ones that needs the support and resources to expand their vocabulary and fluency skills.

These students have high hopes and have set the bar high to achieve their goals.

My Project

The graphic novels will help my foundational readers' anxiety levels lessen, so that they feel like thy can actually read a "series set." The graphic novels will catch their attention and help with those who are visual learners.

Putting a book in every students' hands is my personal goal.

My students will be so pleased and happy to begin their school year with these much needed books!

Please support my ELD classroom in their efforts to become college-ready readers and scholars. These specific titles will help grow my students love for reading and realize the joys and adventures of reading.
