Reading Through Life

My students need more challenging leveled readers to help them grow!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I have 22 fun and energetic students who love to be in school. They love to move around and get their wiggles out. With a classroom of 22 students, I want to give them more challenging books. They love to learn and explore the world around them.

These students are excelling at reading and they need more challenging books to keep them engaged.

They are unique and love to explore the world around them. I believe that they would thrive with books that are leveled for their needs. They need engaging and fun books that are at their level. We have many books but most are beginning to be too easy for them!

My Project

These books will help my students explore the world around them through books. They are voracious readers, and need more challenging books to help them become better readers. They love a good challenge and these books are diverse so every student will have some books that they love. Many come from low income homes where books are not read to them frequently and I hope to instill a love for reading with them that will continue to grow as they become older. These students have flown through the books in my classroom and I would love to be able to let them know that they will have even more options for reading coming soon.
