Mrs. Busby from West Orange NJ is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Book Worms in Need of Books!

My students need more books for our Leveled Library! They are all reading so well and devouring through our books! There are also a few Flexible Seating options in there for the kids for reading time!

My Students

My students are the best! This year I have such a wonderful group of kids that love learning and come to school happy and eager every single day! I work in West Orange NJ with a very diverse group of students that are all wonderful and unique in different ways. Some come from having had a pre-school experience, others have not. Some go home to food, toys, and books at their house, others, unfortunately, do not have these blessings. However, ALL of my kids are smart, beautiful, and happy! They are learning so much and have all began reading! That's where we need your help- BOOKS!

My Project

We are looking to expand our Leveled Libraries and our BRAINS! My students have been reading through all of the books available in our classroom and we are asking for donations of new, exciting, and engaging books on our reading levels. Please help!

Having more books will allow my students to grow and flourish in and out of the classroom.

We are in need of more fiction and non-fiction stories to add to our leveled baskets. These books will be used DAILY- during Independent Reading time, Partner Reading time, Guided Readers, and even sent home to read with our families. We are also asking for a few flexible seatings- Flex-Ball Seats. This will allow us to move around and read all over the room to remain engaged and work on our reading stamina!

We could never have enough books and we are all so grateful for your help and donations!
