Mr. Mox from Grand Rapids MI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books for First Graders!

Help me give my students access to high quality classroom reading materials. Students in first grade are developing their reading skills and need access to a wide variety of content and reading levels for their fast-growing minds.

My Students

My students are excited and energetic learners who enjoy reading and spending time on a variety of projects. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our classroom is our only source for reading materials.

My classroom is always one where students learn to be avid readers.

Our classroom centers around three phrases that frame everything we do: growth mindset, relationships matter, and ownership. All the work we engage in during the year is tied to these three phrases in hope that the students leave understanding the importance of all of them. My current endeavor is working to unpack the Habits of Mind to help kids focus on the initial ways we can structure our thinking and respond to difficult situations.

All projects I seek to get funded connect back to these core anchors: literacy, technology, and mindsets of life long learner.

My Project

As a new first grade teacher, I am working to get my students access to high quality reading materials. I want to provide them with relevant, engaging and motivating texts so they can always find something to read.

The books I have chosen are popular first grade favorites as well as leveled readers that allow students to read books that are a good fit for them while they develop their reading skills.

Your donation would allow students to have many options to chose from for in-class reading as they work to build their reading stamina from 30 second to 30 minutes within the academic year!
