Mrs. S. from Williamsburg VA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ready, Set, Read

My students need engaging books, accessable texts for entering students, and materials for word study activities (sheet protectors and laminate).

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are intervention reading students in grades 3 through 5. Many of my students are currently reading a year or more below grade level. My students are enthusiastic, hard workers and would greatly benefit from additional materials.

My goal is to help them catch up to grade level expectations and become lifelong readers.

I work with my students in differentiated small groups for 30 minutes per day.

Our school is a Title I school; a designation that indicates we serve economically disadvantaged students.

My Project

My students will use books for independent reading at home. Voracious, nightly reading is an essential component to facilitating reading success. When students can find books that they are interested in, they spend more time in texts. More time in texts = more success in reading! I hope students will also want to share titles with younger siblings at home.

My students need materials for creating word study sorts and games.

These materials include laminating sheets for sorts and sheet protectors for games. Word study is a research-based practice that helps readers be more strategic and equipped to navigate increasingly complex print. Computer ink toner will also support word study goals.
