Mrs. Honey from Tulsa OK is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Child First Explores Through the Eyes of a Book!

Help me give my students a classroom library, particularly a 5th grade level set of classics, that will enhance their educational experience in my classroom.

My Students

My students are a very ethnically diverse population and some strongly motivated readers who devour books! Many of the families and students we serve have limited to no access to outside resources such as bookstores or borrowing from a real city/community library.

My students love books, but in a world full of written materials, they have few resources available to them.

When the book fair comes, they stand and peer longingly at books -- the smell and look of something new is inspiring to them, as it is to us all!

These students are developing their reading comprehension, and are encouraged to read at least 20 minutes a day. With new books that open the world to them even further, anything is possible in their learning environment. These students have real abilities to go far in life if encouraged in every aspect of their educational growth. Reading, as the old cliche states, truly IS fundamental for all students.

My Project

I chose a 5th grade classic set of book titles along with other selected titles, for a room (and school) devoid of a library. I teach 5th/6th grade ELA in a school with no formal library or room to host one. Each teacher provides their own set of books for classroom enrichment.

Hosting 5th grade students for a scheduled DEAR time and ELA is currently limited to the few resources that I could purchase at garage sales, thrift stores and some student donations.

I would like to check books out to students who currently have no other library resource.

Additionally, books will serve students that need to experience the written word in print form. These books will serve as enhancement to the current learning curriculum and broaden the cultural and situational horizons of students who are limited in life. I have different reading levels in my classroom -- my current books do serve 2-4th grade levels adequately. However, I am sorely lacking in grade-level fiction and non-fiction resources in the classroom. I believe every child should experience print materials in addition to online experiences. Access to books from the classroom library will also help them understand the basics of checking out materials, taking care of those materials, and returning them with the full reward of checking out more!
