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

Reading Rush Fever

My students need a CD player and a set of single student read-alongs to help them become fluent readers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

What is your favorite story? All students should have one but many times, students draw a blank.

My English Language Learners need lots of phonics, vocabulary development, graphic organizers, and explicit reading comprehension strategies in order to enjoy a story.

They are hardworking and enjoy to be read to. But they face the challenge of truly being able to enjoy a book on their own.

My Project

Through your kind donation, my students will be able to enjoy a story at a listening center in which they can follow along with a portable CD player. This listening center has 10 classic books at their grade level. Listening to a story builds comprehension, vocabulary and fluency.

Please give my students the opportunity to enjoy a classic story that will help them become better readers.

Maybe one day one of the stories they listen in this listening center will be THEIR favorite one.

Nearly all students from low‑income households
