Mrs. Garcia-Sweeney from Saint Louis MO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need 10 high-interest books that will help my students develop a passion for reading.
I teach reading and writing in a high needs community of St. Louis. Despite the hardships my students face, they are incredibly motivated individuals. I am truly impressed with how hard working they are.
My students don't give up when the learning gets tough and always exceed expectations just because they want to.
They are intrinsically motivated to improve and do better. Perhaps what I admire most about them is how kind they are. They are by far the sweetest and most polite group of kids I have ever taught.
Do you remember what it was like the first time you read a book that you couldn't put down? By simply opening the cover, you were able to forget everything and escape into a different world.
The books I am requesting are high interest and will help my students develop a love of reading.
The books in our classroom library are well loved, but after being used for so many years they are falling apart. Our class library is in need of updating. Students will be allowed to check out these books to read for their independent study. By practicing reading with a book of choice they will improve their reading scores and fall in love with literature.
