Ms. Pereira from Bronx NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Books for Readers!

My students need books for reading. The students' classroom library is very bare and lacking books. My students can only read one book a week because there are not enough books to go around.

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. My students are all different types of learners and have various backgrounds. I have students who do not speak English, students with disabilities, and some students who are homeless.

I teach at a Title I school in the Bronx, New York where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students receive food and clothing from the school's charity drives. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

My students are reading at very high reading levels, however, our classroom library only has a handful of higher level reading books. The students are not able to read as much as they can or want because they do not have any reading materials.

These books will increase students' reading skills and interest by having enough books for all students to read.

Many of my students can only read one book per week, or they have to wait until a student is done reading a particular book if they want to read that same book because there aren't multiple copies of each book.

These selected books are classic titles that will teach students about important events in history, famous American authors, and life lessons.
