Ms. Pakrul from Falls Church VA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books for the Win!

Help me give my students a variety of books to meet their needs, as every year I have students with varying reading levels. My students would also benefit from the Reading & Writing strategies books!

My Students

My students are an excited bunch who are always eager to learn new things.

While they all come from very different backgrounds and home lives, they are all the same in their dedication to school and learning.

My school resides in a neighborhood where many of the families are immigrants and speak languages other than English. Many of my students enter school speaking little to no English, but are excited to learn the language. Their different cultures help to make my classroom a diverse learning space for all.

My Project

The books in this project are similar to books that have been big hits in my classroom! In order to continue my student's love of reading, I am hoping to gain more books that really peak their interest and keep them engaged. I have found that children's love of reading starts at an early age and I want to help that love grow.

The Reading Strategies & Writing Strategies books will help me plan for instruction and provide my students with the most meaningful lessons.

I hope to foster my student's love of reading by providing them with a variety of books to grab their attention.
