Mrs. Koenighain from Williamsburg IA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Building Future Readers

My students need new books so that we can expand skills in literacy and their love for reading! I want to be able to do author studies with my students and share my love for reading.

My Students

"It takes a village to raise a child."

My preschool students live in a small rural community.

The students range from 3-5 years old and we have a population of Head Start students. We are a non-profit center and rely on donations and grants to purchase items that will help our students grow, learn, and succeed.

Thank you in advance for helping us make our dreams come true! It takes kindness in this world to make a difference in children's lives.

My Project

Our students and teachers love reading and exploring our themes through books. I want to provide positive learning experiences by doing author studies and having quality books that align with our themes and curriculum.

We need to update and expand our library so it will benefit many little readers in our community.

The students are very motivated by books and have learned many literacy skills by listening to read alouds. We love books that rhyme, concept books, and books that teach character and kindness.

Our Preschool needs your help to keep children interested in books and build a strong early foundation in reading and literacy.
