My Students

I have a classroom full of eager learners. My classroom is comprised of students who are gifted, with learning disabilities, and English language learners. Their reading levels range from pre-kindergarten to fourth grade. While this presents a challenge, all the students love to read and listen to reading.

The more opportunities my students have to experience reading, the more they will grow as readers.

Because I have both new readers and new English learners, I need audio companions to the leveled books my students read.

My Project

I would love to have a classroom library full of diverse books of various reading levels. It is also important to provide students that are not yet reading on their own, many opportunities to listen to reading. This helps build vocabulary and fluency.

My students desire to grow as readers and need the resources to make that happen.

With your support, I can fill out my classroom literacy lab and classroom library in order to build stronger readers. Research says that if a student is behind in the third grade they are likely to never catch up and the gap will only increase.
