Ms. Lopez from Orlando FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Diverse Classroom Library Will Create Strong Readers

My students need books that teach them about diversity and building human character. They also want to understand and learn more about actual events that are currently happening and have taken place in history.

My Students

My classroom is made out of 19 amazing students who truly love to read. During this year they have developed a great love and appreciation for reading. We have quarterly reading goals and each month my kids are reading more and more! They love adventure and fantasy books, but lately, they are more interested in various informational texts as well as books that teach about human character and diversity.

Each day, during Reading centers rotations my kids have the opportunity to visit the classroom library to choose the books that spark their interest.

They are able to enjoy independent reading time as well as share their thoughts with their friends.

My Project

My students need more books that will help them become better individuals and stronger readers. Over the past year, they have developed an interest in current events as well as books that talk about human character. This project will allow my students to have access to a wider variety of books that focus on these areas. As part of their curriculum, my students need to be able to understand non-fiction texts. As teachers we often find ourselves wanting to spark their interest with practice worksheets, but it is difficult. I want my students to have the liberty to use our classroom library and choose the books that they like and want, to be able to practice the skills that will make them better students academically as well as on a personal level.
