We invite you to donate to Bookshare’s annual book drive
This holiday season, give the gift of books to emerging readers. Bookshare is running an end-of-year book drive, and you can help bring high-demand books to students with reading barriers.
Bookshare adds thousands of new titles to the library every month, providing access to more books in easy-to-read ebook formats for students with dyslexia, blindness, low vision, cerebral palsy, and other reading barriers. Our library currently has over 675,000 titles! Yet, this is still a fraction of the one million new books published every year. Members request new books, and we do everything we can to get those into the library.
Making a List and Checking it Twice
Some of the most highly requested books are “leveled readers.” These are collections of books that are organized by difficulty level (from easy to complex) and are designed to help students build reading skills and confidence as they advance through the levels.
Bookshare currently has Fountas & Pinnell’s Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) Green System for Grade 1. With your help, we can purchase the rest of the grades K-5 series. Here is what members tell us about these books:
Literacy leaders, Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell, provide hand-selected, leveled collections. They provide opportunities to extend reading practice and strengthen newly acquired skills of primary grade students. There are 60 single titles for Grade 3, Collections 1 and 2. We would like to get the Leveled literacy Intervention by Fountas & Pinnell on Bookshare. Can those books be added?
I noticed the Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Books green series was available, but not the blue series. As the students increase their reading ability, they are no longer able to access the ebooks in audio and large print of the higher-level books.
We love that you have created some awesome Reading Lists. Is there any way you could create some more like this list for Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) Green System Grade 1? We could use leveled readers at these levels to help our students.
I use this system (Fountas & Pinnell) for my Tier 3 Reading Intervention class and would love to have access to all of the books for my many students who use Bookshare.
My student has an IEP and requires large print and adaptive software for an iPad. He used these leveled readers last year, and I believe they may be available as a whole group, but not sure. Thank you.
I love that you added first grade reading levels and would like to expand the grade level ranges. I work with kids with learning needs and this is GREAT for those teachers using these resources to have more books available and in digital format.
With your help, we can reach our goal of raising $20,000 to complete the Fountas & Pinnell’s Leveled Literacy Intervention series grades K-5 on Bookshare. Whether you can give $5, $10, $20, or more, every gift counts and gets us closer to reaching our $20,000 goal. Thank you!
Gifts to Bookshare are made through our parent nonprofit, Benetech, and are tax-deductible (Tax ID: 77-0555413).
