With these funds I will purchase books for the students to read independently. This encourages and creates a life long love of reading. My students love to read any book they can get their hands on and would love to be able to read different books! 


I will be purchasing books levels A-K for our class with the book bins so that they can be kept with all the other books that are the same level. This makes it easy for students to find their level and pick a book that they want to read.

If we do not meet our goal...

If I do not meet my goal I will purchase these books myself. My students need more opportunities to read and will love these books!
