My Students

My future students are an exciting group of amazing young people. I met most of them, as they passed by my classroom door, last school year. I haven't seen them since the pandemic started and I won't physically meet them at the beginning of this school year.

My students will have a school Chromebook for their virtual learning, but I want to mail them physical books.

Why? My students are emergent, early, and transitional readers. A physical book will help them practice reading as they read along with me.

My Project

I chose guided reading books based on my students' reading levels from last school year. I chose books with diverse characters because I believe representation matters. If you are able to see yourself in literature, then you are able to connect better with it.

You will be supporting/sponsoring the love of reading within my students.

With your help, I will mail books to my students and lead guided reading groups virtually. They will have an incredibly rich reading experience because they will get to keep the books.

Thank you so much!
