Mrs. Elder from Wentzville MO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Building Reading Skills in German

My students need 30 copies of the book "Cinderella: Level 1: Learn German Through Fairy Tales".

My public high school students, from grades 9 through 12, are from very diverse economic and ethnic backgrounds. They are very excited about learning the German language.

Due to a decrease in local property tax income, major budget cuts have been put in place for next year. Access to additional materials for use in the classroom will be limited to what I can purchase and a class set is beyond my personal budget. Students need access to materials that they can connect to and have ease in understanding to provide quick success in a foreign language while still providing challenges.

I wish to have a class set of the book, Cinderella: Level 1: Learn German Through Fairy Tales by David Burke. This will be the first reader that my beginning students will have and will lead to the longer novels and plays that they will read as they move up in levels. My class numbers are increasing which tells me I am a class that students desire to take and if I can reach them early, they continue their German language learning beyond my classroom into college or business. This one book can be a means to this end.

If I were able to have a class set of the books I could reach more students while also helping them in their general reading skills which is useful across all curriculum.
