We have an online subscription to to print leveled guided reading books for kids, however, our district has run out of paper! We cannot print and copy any more books. This is a consistent problem in the spring in my district.

My students need a classroom library of leveled guided reading books for self-selection. By donating to my project, my students will receive the Handprints Leveled Guided Reading Library and will have books available at their level for reading throughout the year.
