Mrs. Botelho from Hilo HI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Clap for Classroom Libraries!

My students need BOOKS! We want to enhance our classroom library. These are the books my students borrow daily from the classroom and take home to share with their family.

My Students

As a teacher in the public school, we are forced to make what we have work for our students. Our classroom is special because we are a inclusion kindergarten classroom. An inclusive classroom is a general education classroom in which students with and without disabilities learn together!

Our classroom is special because each student is unique this it allows students from different backgrounds to come together to collaborate and share their bright ideas!

Every day my students come into my classroom eager to learn and share their ideas with their friends. We follow Waiakea Elementary School's Mission, preparing our students for today and tomorrow by providing strong academic and emotional foundations.

My Project

Reading and sharing stories help our children become familiar with sounds, words, and language. Reading can also build stamina- stronger self-discipline, longer attention span, and better memory retention. Reading develops the mind, helps us discover new things, and develops imagination...with reading you can go anywhere in the world, the possibilities are endless!

I would like to enhance our classroom library so my students can have access to a variety of books that they can take home and share with their family.

I want my students to love reading, providing them access to a variety of books can spark their enthusiasm for books and reading!
