Ms. Rodriguez from Bronx NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students high interest books for a take-home lending library.
As a teacher in an inner-city public school, I've learned so much from my students' resilience. They inspire me to be the best teacher that I can be every day. I teach in the heart of the Bronx. My school is a Title I school. This means that my students are at risk of failure and live at or near poverty. Although they face hardships and cope with a variety of circumstances at home, they walk into my classroom with incredible enthusiasm and a desire to learn.
I teach 30 bright and enthusiastic children that deserve to have a fair and equal opportunity to obtain a high-quality education.
Parents always ask me what they can do at home to support their child's reading comprehension. My response is always the same, take time to read a good book and engage your child in meaningful conversations about it.
Accessibility to quality books at home is critical to promote language acquisition, literacy and comprehension skills but most importantly it builds a partnership between the school and home.
I'm confident that this lending library will be an incredible resource to the families of my students. It will encourage and provide them with great books to read at home with their child.
Since most of the books in my classroom library are devoted to in-class reading, I want to create a separate selection of equally desirable books that students can borrow and take home to read. Your donation will not only ensure that quality books are available for my students to read but it will share and promote the love of reading fostered in our classroom to my student's family at home.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
