Mrs. Tuckett from Saratoga Springs UT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Books and a Bookshelf to House Them!

Help me give my students a variety of engaging reading books/magazines to build our classroom library and help enhance reading fluency and comprehension and a subscription to scholastic news.

  • This project is not currently eligible for funding.
  • $987 goal

My Students

I teach middle school resource students that struggle with reading and writing. They have a desire to improve these skills and work hard in class each day. They enjoy independent reading with books of their choice that are engaging.and fun.

My Project

This project will help my students have access to books/ magazines that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed word. We also need a bookshelf to house our growing library. This project will also help furnish composition notebooks for my students to respond to writing prompts relating to their readings.
