With these funds I will purchase a membership to Reading A-Z and copy paper. This membership allows us to print out books so each student has their own. These books are important because they will be at each child's individual reading level. Right now, we have a library full of wonderful picture books but we need leveled readers. We need these books to become better readers and to practice all of our reading strategies that we learn in school! The copy paper is to print the books.
