My students need quality literature to read during class and to take home for nightly home reading assignments.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
This is my first year teaching in a new school, in a new grade level, and sadly, I've inherited a classroom without any books!
My students attend a large school in a poverty stricken neighborhood.
100% of my students receive free breakfast and lunch. More than 85% of the children in my class are the first in their families to learn English. The majority of the children are immigrants whose families work tirelessly in the agricultural industry.
I would love to give my students the gift of reading by providing a collection of quality literature and non-fiction texts in class, but also by sharing these materials with the families through our school's home reading club. I hope that every night my students can take home a good book to share with their parents and siblings.
Your generous donation will give my students a wonderful gift: quality literature to hold in their hands, share with their families, and remember for a lifetime.
I believe that with this project my students can become lifelong readers!
