Mrs. Snyder from N Las Vegas NV is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Books to Inspire Learning

Help me give my students some wonderful books to read, such as, The Tree in the Courtyard: Looking Through Anne Frank's Window. These books will provide students with literature that will help foster their love of reading.

My Students

My students are excited to visit the library and check out what is available every time they enter the library. My goal as the teacher librarian is to create life-long readers and to show my students everything literature has to offer. I teach at a Title I School where 100 percent of my students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My kindergarten-fifth grade students are eager to check out books and begin their journey with reading.

I serve a diverse population and strive to encourage and support every student. As a Title I School, my budget for the library is limited and the library budget is often cut. The library is an integral part of the school and I would love to see my library thrive with students reading and discussing literature and authors.

My Project

Books create inspiration where none can be found. My students will be inspired to learn and dig deeper as they read about people, places, and animals from the books. They will learn about Ann Frank from the book, The Tree in the Courtyard: Looking Through Anne Frank's Window.

The titles selected are meant to encourage students to think about how they feel and how others feel.

I also want students to realize superheroes are all around us and the book, Superheroes Are Everywhere, will help students see that you don't have to wear a cape to be a superhero. This project includes chapter and picture books so I can provide resources for all reading levels.
