Ms. Mendoza from Lawton OK is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books Needed!

My students need these books in the classroom. The books that I currently have are falling apart and have missing pages. I teach Special education.

My Students

My students are Special Education 6th through 8th grade readers. They all love to read, and love these books. Every year we read these books in my classroom and unfortunately the books are not in that great of condition. They are falling apart and missing pages. It is frustrating to a student when they are very interested in the book and it is missing pages. We have a lot of underprivileged students at our school, who may not come from the best neighborhood or background.

My Project

I teach Special Education Reading and it is important to read books and understand them. The students enjoy these books and are interested in the series because they all connect. The books that I currently have in the classroom are falling apart or missing pages. If a student is absent, I do not have enough books for them to borrow one and take home and catch up on reading. It would be beneficial to have new books that are not missing any pages and if they are absent they will be able to borrow one of the older books that do have all of the pages in tack.

All of my students really enjoy reading these series and I would love to continue to use these particular books in my classroom.
