"Hello!" I am a special education teacher for students in grades K- 4th grade in Iowa. The students in my classroom have different disabilities and individual needs. Most of my students have a severe reading deficit and are on an individual educational plan (IEP).

New books for our classroom library will motivate my students to read more and get excited about reading. My students complain about having read all of the books on their reading level in the classroom library , or that the books are missing pages in them and they can't read them etc.. These new books will bring smiles to my students faces.

I would like to be able to provide my struggling readers a variety of new and updated books,which can relate to real life situations. At the same time strengthen, and increase their literacy level and skills. These additional books are sure to help develop greater reading habits,as well as install a love for reading. With excellent books with which to enjoy and strengthen their reading skills.

I would like to thank you in advance for your generosity. With our state cutbacks,money is not available for this type of purchase. The books you help purchase will be read dozens of times by current and future students in the years to come. They will provide students the ability to experience many experiences through reading. I can already picture the excitement on their faces.
