Mrs. Guthrie from Baltimore MD is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ready, Set, Read!

My Students

Most students who are in this classroom, live within a poverty stricken neighborhood and they often face challenges before even entering the doors of the school. Within my classroom, students love to turn into children and most importantly be exposed to another world through English Language Arts, writing, mathematics, science and social studies by having access to technology such as computers, and other hands on activities.

Although we have students across all grade levels, one thing is for sure in our room; our students love to learn!

They do not allow for the barriers they encounter on a daily basis to impede their learning, or hinder the success they encounter each and every day.

My Project

Because our self contained classroom contains a variety of grade levels and students who are performing on different levels, having access to Audiobooks and their paired text allows students the increase the opportunity to independently read texts and comprehend what they are reading. Currently in our classroom we do not have any audiobooks, so independent reading time is a hard task because it can prove to be more frustrating than successful.

By creating this Audiobook Library, students are not only increasing their reading skills, but also building their confidence!

Students will become more comfortable with reading texts about the world around them, while also improving their independent reading level.
