My Students

My first graders are absolutely amazing!

They come from low economic backgrounds and live in a high poverty area.

This does not deter them from reaching for the stars. Your generous donations will allow them access to things they normally wouldn't be able to afford in our classroom. Your donation will make our classroom a much better place to learn. My students deserve nothing but the best, and with your help, they will be on their way to learning success! I thank you for your generosity and let the science learning begin! Let them discover the world in a way they have never seen before.

My Project

The guided reading books I am requesting will be a huge help to our class to build our leveled classroom library. We don't have much money to buy new books and most of my books are pretty out of date.

The kids will love all the new books to explore and learn about different topics.

The titles include fiction and nonfiction leveled books. The children will use these leveled books to practice their reading skills and become more fluent. I plan on building my library with more leveled books to reach all of their independent levels. My students deserve the best classroom in the world. They also need mailboxes and drawers on wheels to organize their journals and hard work. I need a record book, planning book, and desk calendar to keep all of my data organized. Lastly, they need a Bluetooth speaker so they can actually hear what they are watching on their Smart Board.
