Upgraded A.R. Needs Updated A.R. Library

My students need new classroom books to accompany our upgraded Accelerated Reader System. These include 2 leveled collections, "Dream Keeper and Other Poems," and more.

My Students

My students and I have waited so anxiously for our old A.R. system to be upgraded, a whole semester to be exact! So when the news finally came that the system would be upgraded last week, I along with my students were overjoyed!

Yes, we were and are overjoyed with the idea of our new system but we know that because we are a Title I school with the highest amount of students receiving free/reduced lunch that the thought of asking for funding to purchase books during these times would most assuredly result in a no response!

But neither I nor my students will let one no response close the door on my students fulfilling their dreams of becoming the Best Readers on this side of the East Coast.

My Project

The resources that I'm requesting may seem simple to you but to us they mean so much more. Our classroom library is in such dire need of books that are leveled for and can be used with Accelerated Reader which is why I'm requesting an assortment of fiction, non-fiction and poetry books to add to our classroom library so that students can overall increase their literacy comprehension and reading levels.

This project is so important to not only me but also to my students as we seek to increase their level of comprehension, understanding and their exposure to new and different genres of books.
