Mrs. Micka from Anaheim CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chevron Help Fuel our Special Day Classroom!

My students need high-interest books to help spark their interest in the beauty of reading. They also need two bean bag chairs where they can sit and enjoy a quiet reading corner.

My Students

A typical day in our classroom is filled with young, bright students eager to learn. I want my students to experience the joy of books and all the creativity that comes with it. I fear that they will leave my classroom not having the experience of sitting in a quiet corner and enjoy a good book.

My students are a first through third special day classroom in a public elementary school in a high poverty area.

My students have a ranging of disabilities and require a high level of structure and organization. Most of my student qualify for free and reduced lunch and they are English Language Learners. Therefor, books are crucial to their language development. My students are young bright scholars who are eager to learn and who enjoy flipping the pages of high interest books.

My Project

Most of my students lack the confidence in the classroom, especially since most of them require high levels of support. Chevron by providing my classroom with high interest, classic books they will be able to sit and enjoy the beauty of getting lost in a good book. I have specifically chosen classic children books such as "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" and Dr. Seuss classics. You would be providing them with the experience of sitting on a bean bag and choosing a high interest book and simply enjoying the experience of reading. Our classroom library is very limited, therefor by fueling our classroom with BOOKS and a reading corner you will be helping spark the interest in reading in our special day classroom.

Donations to this project will help improve the reading experience for my students.

They will have access to classic children books and they will be able to sit in a quiet corner and fall in love with the experience of reading. This project has the ability to change the lives of my students by sparking an interest in their reading experience. The books I have specifically chosen are classic children books that every elementary student deserves to read. Please help fuel our class with books.
