Ms. Mitchell from Detroit MI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading Around the World

My students need 25 copies of expository text magazines and word trackers to assist them with tracking while reading.

  • $307 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Students will be exposed to different genres of text using magazines and reading trackers. My first grade students are beginning to learn how to read and I would like to expose them to a variety of text and photos.

My students are in a inner-city area and have limited resources of books and materials, there is not a library or local bookstore in the area for students to have access to a variety of photos and reading materials.

We are in need of grade appropriate magazines and reading trackers for my first grade class. Through these magazines students will have an opportunity to explore the world through photos and appropriate grade level text.

You will make it possible for my students to explore and visit places through photos of the world around us. The first grade students in my class will be able to read magazine articles which will assist with fostering a love of reading. My students will have an opportunity to experience what is going on in the world around them.
