Mrs. Ciamberlano from Bensalem PA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books Galore!

Help me give my students a huge selection of new books for them to explore a world beyond our classroom. My students love reading book after book within their favorite series, such as the Dog Man series.

My Students

My 4th-grade students are awesome kids! They represent many different countries and many of my students are fluent in two languages. My class of 30 students are diverse in many ways. They are a diverse class in who they are, where they come from, the languages they speak, the way they learn, and so much more. I learn so much from my students! They come to me with a wealth of information that they love sharing. I love learning about their cultures, native countries, and their languages. We have a wonderful time learning from one another!

My students are enthusiastic about their education, and are always excited to learn new things.

They love to listen to stories and get totally immersed in the plot where they don't want me to stop reading! They are becoming amazing writers and are always trying new things. My students LOVE science! They are naturally curious kids and have tons of questions about the world. They enjoy hands-on science investigations and making new discoveries. We are a class that cares about each other and are always taking the time to do kind things for one another.

My Project

My students love to read, and they enjoy reading all kinds of books! By including series sets and more graphic novels, my students will be very excited to get reading.

One of the best ways to encourage a love of reading is for a child to find a series they enjoy so they will want to read book after book and then anticipate the next ones to come out.

My students also cannot get enough of the nonfiction series "Where Is?", Who Was?" This selection of books will be a perfect addition to our classroom library and make independent reading a part of the day they cannot wait for!
