Mrs. Schnablegger from Los Angeles CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

In our classes, we have 80 incredibly diverse students. Each student comes with unique experiences that add to our classroom culture. Within our class, we have a range of learning styles and needs. Each student has a unique perspective and adds a wonderful dynamic to our classroom.

All the students are eager to learn and jump at the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge in different ways.

With your contributions and generous donations, they will be able to further thrive in learning the curriculum and excel in their education.

My Project

All of the books about ancient civilizations that I have found will help the students understand the life and culture of these civilizations. These resources will encourage my kiddos to delve deeper into history and develop an understanding of how history affects us today. Students are often limited to their textbooks which are unappealing and dense. These books will provide students with additional scaffolding and support in order to access grade-level content.

Using the books in this project will give my students a boost in their learning and encourage them to develop a love for reading and learning.
