Mrs. Hansen from Madison SD is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Building My Library

Help me give my students a greater variety of books to read in our classroom library. This will also help meet the variety of reading levels and needs of my students.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach fifth grade students from a variety of backgrounds. These students are also a highly impressionable age and easily impacted by their experiences both in and out of the classroom. This makes my job as a teacher even that much more important in shaping these young minds.

Each student needs to have the opportunity to learn how to overcome the challenges they face to become the best version of themselves.

With the availability of a variety of resources students are exposed to more of these challenges in a safe setting where they can practice the skills that will become vital to them as they grow into young adults.

My Project

This will give my students additional resources outside of our basal text to read. They will be able to select stories they are interested in and at their instructional level with a greater variety of books to choose from. Our students are able to check out books from our school library but only once a week. Students often finish books before they are able to check out again. By having books accessible in my classroom, students will be able to read whenever they have time. Reading is a life long skill I want to instill in my students. Thank you for supporting my project!
