Ms. Sepulveda from Los Angeles CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Books That Move You

My students need books that target areas of writing and promote diversity in the classroom. This year, I would like to read "All Are Welcome" as part of building our classroom community.

My Students

My students have diverse backgrounds, but the majority of them come from low-income families. Despite some of their circumstances, they come to school with an open heart and willingness to learn. They are sweet, brutally honest and energetic.

My students have different personalities and each student contributes something unique to our classroom.

We use our creativity to tell stories, make up songs and draw pictures. They dance, they sing and sometimes, they cry. Every day is a new adventure and a new learning experience.

My Project

All of the books selected for this project are carefully selected with a goal in mind. The books will support my classroom during Writing and in Social Science. These books are a way to introduce topics, begin discussions and motivate my students.

My students will see themselves represented in these books.

It is important that my students can see positive and encouraging stories about people who look like them. One of my goals is to build a library that celebrates everyone. My other goal this year is to better support the needs of my students in writing. Many of the books selected will be used during writers workshop.
