Mrs. Scambray from New Caney TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books, Cd's and Learning, Oh My!

My students need books on CD, sight word practice games, Hot Dots, Lakeshore Measurement Centers, and Math Start Stories to help develop their English language skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Most of my students speak more than one language. My goal is to develop their English language skills.

Most of my students do not have the opportunity to read new books at home.

For the majority of my students, English is their second language. It is vital for them to see the text in a book, as well as hear it. This will help their language and reading skills develop. It is important for my students to see academic text in different settings as well. I want them to have the opportunity to listen and read books that are in other subjects areas such as math and science.

My Project

Sight Word Wrap Ups, Math Start Stories, Listen and Read with Dr. Seuss, Hot Dots, and Measurement Centers will give my students many opportunities to develop language skills that will help improve their lives by learning to read and speak the English language. This is a skill they can also share with their families. These resources will be placed in our classroom library and stations for the students to use freely on a daily basis.

Please help our classroom!

These materials will impact the lives of more than 40 students. You can be a part in helping many students learn to read, speak and listen to the English language. Students will develop important language skills because of your donation.
