Mrs. Evans from Indianapolis IN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading, Reading, Reading!

My students need small sets of 7 different novels to be exposed to great literature because reading is so much better with GREAT books to read! We need books that we can read in book clubs, so I am requesting 6 of each of the books!

My Students

My classroom is composed of very different types of children. They live in high poverty areas and are from low income families. There are special needs students as well as English language learners. There is a wide mix of abilities and personalities. However, they ALL love to learn!

My students are amazing and deserve to be able to learn in the best environment possible!

They work really hard to GROW every day. They are kind and caring. This class proves every day that they can do anything they put their minds to!

My Project

Book groups are a great way to teach students at their level in reading. Every day, we break into small groups of about 6 students to read. It is so important to not only choose books around their reading level but also to choose books that interest them! It can also be a problem to find books that they have not already read from our limited supply of novels.

Obtaining these small sets of seven different books will help ensure that my students have good reading material available to them.

It will also help engage them in interesting material. I have requested some great books like Holes, Sarah, Plain and Tall, and Charlotte's Web, among others!
