Ms. K. Cox from Baltimore MD is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books For College Bound Pre-K Students! (2018)

Help me give my students 20 copies of The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats, so that they can each have their very own book to read and keep this holiday season!

My Students

My Pre-Kindergarten students are enthusiastic "college bound" learners! They are intelligent, young students, but the reality is that their socioeconomic statuses and zip codes put them at an academic disadvantage, as compared to their more affluent peers. They are in dire need of having access to quality materials, both inside and outside of the classroom. However, providing them with the supplies necessary to learn in this context is a struggle due to severe budget cuts.

For most of my students, this is their first experience in a structured learning environment.

I want to be able to make their first learning experience hands-on and fun!

My Project

All students, regardless of socioeconomic status, deserve to have quality materials to learn and grow from. Students need to interact with these materials on a daily basis, both inside and outside of the classroom, to build foundational learning skills and support growth and development of new higher-level learning skills. How are students expected to progress in this development when the materials required for this growth are not accessible to them? Many of my students do not have access to appropriate children's literature at home. We are requesting 20 books of "The Snowy Day" so that each of my students can take one home for the holidays and keep it forever as their very own. My former students have been sincerely grateful the past 7 years for the funding of this project. The act of extreme generosity for this project request truly fostered and developed my former students' love for reading and learning! I hope to provide my students this year with that same inspiration.

My students are "college bound" learners who currently lack quality materials needed to support them in their academic journey.

Help provide my students with the tools needed to be successful learners this holiday season. Give them something to personally own, a book that can open up not only their imaginations, but the door to continue on their pathway of "college bound" learning.
