Mrs. Soloff from Mesa AZ is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading to Achieve

My students need a collection of nonfiction reading materials and a cart to manage them, to help improve literacy.

My Students

Many of my students have not yet discovered that books can take them to faraway places and help them to discover new and interesting things. Perhaps this will be the year that this discovery occurs!

I am a teacher in a Title 1 school here in Arizona, where 86% of our students are eligible for free and reduced lunches.

My students are very energetic fourth graders who love to learn! They are very hardworking and have a bright future ahead of them. It is a very diverse community, and one in which many of our students are second language learners.

My Project

The students in my classroom will use these materials to help them improve their literacy skills. Students will be able to use these non-fiction books to help increase their knowledge on various content, as well as write reports, generate their own questions, and increase their overall reading abilities.

This donation will improve our classroom by supplying the necessary materials to teach non-fiction reading.

Much of what we read as adults is non-fiction. Often times, students have little exposure to this type of literature. Not only will the students be learning necessary skills for our grade level with this donation, but they will also be learning lifelong skills that will help to make the students successful adults in the future.
