Mr. Maramara from Orlando FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Building Our Classroom Library

My students need more exposure to a variety of quality literature that they will use to develop a love for reading.

My Students

My students are hardworking and eager to learn. I love the curiosity that they bring into the classroom each and every day. Their compassion is reflected through their actions and the way they treat each other.

Fostering an early love for reading is my goal.

My students devour the books they get their hands on and they are excited when our trip to the library arrives. Their interests are diverse, as is my class and they enjoy discussing and recommending a great read with one another.

My Project

These books, such as The Giving Tree and From Seed to Plant, will be used to expose my students to quality literature as we cover the 3rd grade ELA standards. The books chosen were selected for their variety in subject matter and student interest. These books will not only be used during mini-lessons, but will also be rotated in and out of our own classroom library for students to investigate further.

My goal is to foster an early love for reading in all of my students.

I want all of my students to become lifelong readers. I'm asking for your help in building our classroom library to help me achieve this goal.
