Mrs. Garner from Pelion SC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Readers Gonna Read!

Help me give my students high interest books. My goal is to help my students learn to read, but more importantly, to show them how to fall head over heels in love with reading!

My Students

Despite growing up in low income households and experiencing school through the lens of Other Health Impairment or a Learning Disability, my students want to grow and glow each day. They embrace opportunities to read new and exciting books which encourage them to fall in love with reading as well as help them grow in knowledge.

Even with their struggles to read, we find ways to grow and glow EVERY DAY!

My students have the most success when matched with the right books about topics they are interested in and are on their independent levels! With this recipe, my students growth and love for reading is undeniable!

My Project

By surrounding students with books, I hope to improve their attitudes towards reading, their reading performance, and stamina. Reading shouldn't be work and for students with limited opportunities to read high interest books on their level, that is what it feels like. My hope is that through this project, students will no longer view reading as something hard and as work, but as an experience filled with love and enjoyment.

Please help me be a book pusher and get as many books as possible into the hands of my students!

I envision students entranced by what they are reading, recommending, and engaging in book talks with peers! These books will help accomplish this goal! The more books students have access to, the more opportunities they have to read!
