Mrs. Sullivan from Noblesville IN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Book Borrowers!

My students need a literacy library which includes Young Cam Jansen, Biscuit, Katie Woo and more, from which they can borrow books to take home to enrich their literacy experiences and fullfill their weekly reading requirements.

My Students

As a second grader, it is important to end the year with a strong reading foundation. Each day we strive to incorporate reading into all of our activities. In addition, we have a weekly reading requirement at home.

Our school is the smallest of our large suburban school district.

We have a diverse group of students coming from various cultural and economic backgrounds. We have a great group of teachers who focus on student growth each and every day. We also have wonderful families who do the best they can to meet their child's educational needs.

My Project

I am requesting various book series' that will make up a take-home library, which includes Young Cam Jansen, Biscuit, Katie Woo and more, from which they can borrow books to take home to enrich their literacy experiences and fullfill their weekly reading requirements. I have noticed that many of my students are unable to complete their weekly reading homework because they do not have access to high quality literature. In addition, they struggle with comprehension and fluency because they do not have enough exposure to a variety of print. As a young teacher, my classroom library is limited, and I am not able to lend out books for home use too often. This take-home library would allow students to borrow books each week so that they are able to extend their reading and thinking at home.

My students LOVE to read, and would be thrilled to know that they have an endless supply of books they can borrow, take care of, and learn from, even at home.

They will also be able to bring their love of reading into their homes which will help support our home to school connection. In addition, my students will be able to fulfill their weekly reading assignments, which will help not only their grades, but their overall confidence.
