Teacher Bonner from Newport News VA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading Is My Super Power!

Help me give my students a wide variety of fiction books to read! These books include graphic novels, fables and fairy tales, easy readers, as well as books with humor.

My Students

My students are amazing! They enjoy listening to and reading great books! Their goal is to read more books and become better readers. They encourage each other. Most importantly they help one another to ensure that no one is left behind.

I have a class that is full of Super Heroes and their super human powers are fueled by books.

The more they read, the more empowered they become. They are reading the books in the classroom at a lightening pace and we're running out of books!

My Project

The books that I am requesting will be used in several ways. Students will be able to read the books individually during small group time or during Drop Everything and Read. They will also be able to enjoy reading the same text with a buddy/partner. They will have opportunities to listen while the book is read aloud. My students will analysis the authors craft to assist them with writing their very on fiction book.

By donating, my students will have access to a wider variety of books.

These books will give them an opportunity to increase their vocabulary/comprehension, to become fluent readers and most importantly motivate them to read more.
