Mrs. Reid from Omak WA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Busy Readers Make Busy Thinkers!

My students need more books in our classroom library. They are so interested in reading and would love a bigger selection to choose from than what I've scraped together for them.

My Students

My students are so hands on and are learning so quick when I teach to their style. They are already quickly picking up on spreading the kindness I show them. It is amazing to see students who majority come from broken homes, come into my class every day with a smile because they know they are loved and accepted by their peers and I.

Several parents have said for the first time their child is bummed about a school break because they want to be back in the classroom.

My students are driving their learning and making memories in our second grade room.

My Project

I have a class that ranges in reading levels that are from kindergarten-4th grade. I teach 2nd and don't have the resources to give all my students challenging and interesting books. I would like to give them more books to read. For a lot of my students the books they check out from my classroom library are the only source of literature they get to read at home. Reading changes their way of thinking and encourages them to challenge themselves. My students will thrive with new books to read. Especially if I can give them books closer to their reading level.
