Mr. Bartone from West Haven CT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Beginning The Year With New Books!

My students need a classroom set of books and tablets to increase opportunities for reading.

My Students

Some of my students have yet to discover the magic that reading brings to their young minds. By finding books that are engaging and entertaining, they will see the value that comes from reading every day.

My students are diverse, caring, and devoted students.

Most of all, though, they are hard-working. They come to school each day with a spirit of teamwork, and deserve to receive the best education they possibly can. While our school provides as much as they can of what we need, I believe it is important to go above and beyond, to provide my students with more.

My Project

The books and tablets that I am requesting will all be extremely useful in our new Daily 5 literacy program. These books will serve as whole class reading tools, as well as guided reading activities. "Out of my Mind" will be a great resource for teaching my students about perseverance, and how everyone is different. The tablets will provide access to countless language arts resources, as well.

This project, along with all of my previous projects, have provided items that may not have been attainable otherwise.

When my students find out that other people are supporting our classroom, it makes their education even more meaningful.
