A Library Full of Books!

My students need two mobile library carts filled with "just right" books to add in their reading corner!

My Students

As a first year teacher in a low-income school district, there are many resources that my students need to use to learn in order to become successful. This includes resources such as writing utensils, reading materials, mathematics manipulatives, as well as a classroom that is comfortable. Teaching in a low-income school district means that my students are faced with several challenges inside and outside of the classroom. I want to provide my students with essentials learning utensils to succeed.

My classroom will include twenty-four smart and creative students who want to learn.

Kindergarteners require a variety of hands-on manipulatives and materials. In my classroom, ninety percent of my students come to school knowing English as their second language. Many of my students come from households where they are raised by a single parent that works two to three jobs. Although I cannot control what happens at home, I can control what is taught and learned at school. This means providing them with a variety of learning materials that correspond to their reading, mathematic, science, and social studies levels. By doing this, I am hopeful that I can help them succeed in their life and achieve their dreams.

My Project

My students have taken off with their reading abilities and they need more books! Teaching in a low income community makes it challenging to purchase books that are just right for my student's reading levels.

By gifting my students with brand new books as well as a place to put the books will help my student's end of the year reading goals.

Books are the key to learning and are so important, especially in kindergarten. Your generous donations to our project will improve our future leader's reading abilities so much. My students and I will be forever grateful to you!
