Mrs. Stewart from Bristolville OH is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books, Books And Books!

My students need a library in class to help promote good reading habits that can open the world to our students that may not have access to the written word.

My Students

I teach in a productive, rural school system that strives to meet the common and individual needs of each and everyone of our students. In total, our elementary school houses grades pre-k through sixth with a total of around three hundred and fifty willing learners who come to school ready to learn no matter their interest, abilities, aptitudes and learning styles. A little over fifty percent of those students come from low income families making it challenging for all students to come to school with the resources they need. Our district is constantly striving to improve to ensure that we are providing our students with experiences that will prepare them to be productive students and citizens throughout their lives. Various academic supports are currently in place, including RTI, to ensure this happens.

Specifically, I teach sixth grade and it is important for me to always make sure they are provided with every opportunity and every resource they need to be able to learn, work and grow as students.

My classroom is the home of about fifty, eager learners. Their abilities range from students with disabilities to students identified as gifted learners. I teach ELA and Social Studies.

My Project

I currently do not have a classroom library. Although I have a great partnership with my local public library, some students don't have access to it and it isn't always convenient to send students there.

A classroom library would benefit all of my students and make available books to all students right in our classroom.

It will give materials that we will be able to do book talks/book shares using these books and will also contribute to lessons that can be used in support of our reading curriculum. I asked for "Freak the Mighty" that I thought would make a great literature circle to use. I've included some of my favorite books such as, "Watson's Go to Birmingham", "The Giver" and "The Hunger Games", as well as a variety of other amazing titles and genres.

This will also reflect my love for reading and provide books for everyone to use.
