Ms. Pulliam from Cross Lanes WV is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Catchy Chapters

Help me give my students more opportunities to read. I am requesting many series of books. My students have a wide variety of interests, so I would like to be able to offer them more to enjoy.

My Students

I work in a school outside of Charleston, West Virginia. A lot of the schools in WV are low-income schools. Half of the students at my school come from low-income households. However, no matter what lifestyle my students come from, I want all of them to be able to come to school every day and enjoy the content they are learning. There are so many ways that students can learn, and I would love to offer them the many ways of learning. I am so excited about continuing my teaching career with these students and being able to make a difference in their lives.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance learning for my students. We have time to work on independent reading, so I would like to be able to offer my students the opportunity to read books they are interested in. These books will be placed in my classroom library.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a wide variety that will allow them to read at their own grade level.

Being able to do this allows for students to grow a love for reading. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind. I have been lucky to watch most of them grow in the past year. This year, I had the opportunity to move up a grade level with them. I would love to continue to help them grow and expand their imaginations.

I hope to help them grow by helping them with reading. The more books we have, the more opportunities to read. The more opportunities to read, the better my students become. I am so excited to expand our collection and expand their minds.
