My Students

We have a total of four classes and 58 amazing preschoolers! They are ages 4 - 5 at LE. We are always in need of new books for our students. They will be used for read alouds and in our book corner. The kids always get SO excited when we introduce new books to the classroom. Having a wide range of books is so helpful for early literacy! I've selected books that will be easily integrated into our curriculum to help my students learn and grow. Thank you for donating!

My Project

We are in need of new books for our preschool classroom. Many of our books are old and torn. Preschool students need access to many different kinds of books. I've selected fiction and non fiction books for our class library.

I love teaching at the preschool level, but one of the best things is the excitement on a child's face when new books are introduced in a fun way!

I am passionate about early literacy and I feel that access to great books is one of the most important steps to facilitating growth. Please help us grow our class library. Thank you!
