Ms. Shab from Killeen TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Student Read-Aloud Books

My students need books to listen to in our "Listen to Reading" station; I currently don't own any read-alouds for them to listen to.

  • $365 goal

This project expired on January 25, 2014.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Please help provide my students with exciting, fun books to listen to! I currently don't own any, and they need exposure to fluent reading other than myself. My "Listen to Reading" station is currently empty, so please consider helping my kids to enjoy their love of reading! I want my kids to become life-long readers, and that starts now! Teaching them to love books will set them on a path to love reading for the rest of their lives.

I have a wonderful group of kids!

Our school is located in a low socio-economic area, which means many don't have resources to learning outside the school. My school tries to provide as much as possible, but often our hands are tied as well. My kids deserve to have a classroom library full of books to develop their love of reading. They love to read, and I want to expose them to even more ways to love books!

My Project

My "Listen to Reading" station is currently bare, and that's tragic. Children of all ages love being read to, and it's sad I currently can't offer them more options other than myself reading to them. I have chosen timeless chapter books that my kids would love to hear! Listening to fluent reading will not only develop their own skills as readers, it will promote their love of books as well. Please consider helping my kids and giving them some wonderful options to listen to.

Receiving these books would have a huge impact on my children.

They would have the opportunity to develop their fluency skills, comprehension skills, and most importantly, they will be able to sit back and enjoy hearing a book they love! I want my kids to become life-long readers, and that starts now! Teaching them to love books will set them on a path to love reading for the rest of their lives.
