Ms. McFadden from Bronx NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books! Books! Oh! The Places We Will Go...

My students need more reading books for our classroom library to enhance and continue their love of reading. Reading is a way for my students to learn and grow and become lifelong readers.

My Students

As a teacher in a low income district, my students are faced with a variety of challenges. Despite the challenges they face, my students need an environment where they are safe to learn, be creative and grow into young adults. My students love to read and enjoy the read aloud community that we have built in our classroom.

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day.

I ask them, "Who is the best fourth grade class in the whole world?" and they reply, "We are!" I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.

Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day.

My Project

My students need reading books such as Dork Diaries to continue building our reading comprehension skills as we prepare for different state exams that require reading across genres. Reading helps build our love for reading, stamina and our vocabulary. Our students will use these books to explore different genres, building our reading stamina, writing, and vocabulary. These books will be used in class and at home for students to read and write about the books.

Your generous donation to our project will improve our 4th grade classroom by building a stronger reader and writer.

This will change our students' lives for the better because they will love school and feel success at any age --- having fun while learning!
