Mrs. Miller from Racine WI is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

We Love Reading!

Help me give my students more tools to enhance their reading and writing skills. The books will provide more informational texts for them to build their vocabulary. The listening microphone will help to build fluency.

My Students

My students from Wisconsin are 4th grade elementary students. The entire school receives free lunches. We recently implemented Reader's and Writer's Workshop, which my students have stepped up to the challenge with determination. My energetic 4th graders' enter the classroom ready to learn, discover, and explore.

They inquisitively read books, and engage in learning all day.

They beam with joy as they proudly engage in their learning journey with each other. They love to learn!

To assist them in their academic journey we explore a variety of learning opportunities, such as team building activities, collaborative feedback, and practice growth mindset.

My Project

I have chosen two resources to enhance my classroom library. One is a set of nonfiction books that explain global challenges the world is facing, because society is becoming more global, my students need to learn about these issues to help develop solutions in the future to address these challenges. I feel the recording microphone will be an asset for some students who struggle with fluency to assist them in critiquing their self-monitor their reading. The nonfiction books will build vocabulary, and the microphones with improve fluency. I will use these materials to differentiate learning in small groups.

These tools will get my students even more excited about reading!

They are curious about the world around them and enjoy reading to learn new facts.
