Mrs. Brailsford from Hollywood SC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books, Books, and More Books!

My students need books, books, and MORE books! We are growing our library for all readers in grades K-12!

My Students

My school is a K-12 Charter School located outside of Charleston, South Carolina. Our school is filled with students from all different backgrounds and varying abilities. My hope is to provide our NaviGators with a library that is warm and an inviting place to read!

Our library is the center of learning in our diverse population!

Our students visit the library often for a variety of reasons and we want to continue to serve them with a comfortable and safe place to read and learn. Our students come from a variety of different economic and cultural backgrounds, but still have one thing in common: they have the desire to LEARN! I wanted to tap into that fervor and excitement by expanding our library and creating a fun and safe place to read!

LLCS is committed to providing all students a safe and exceptional academic environment that cultivates independent learning, character enrichment, and regional awareness while developing accountable leaders, community stewards, and diverse thinkers through project-based experiences.

My Project

Fairy tales, humorous, and realistic fiction books spark interest in my early childhood students. I'd like to give them access to even more books, so that they continue to read for pleasure and thus build their reading skills.

By providing our early childhood students with books, they will develop a passion for reading!

The books I am requesting are books to help developing readers in phonics, sight words, and early reading skills. My students desire to have books with engage pictures and characters embarking on grand adventures! Reading for pleasure is the best way to increase student literacy and content knowledge!
