Mrs. Lynn from Palo Cedro CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Class Library

My students need a class library with various genres and levels to help them advance as readers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Learning to read for a variety of purposes is essential to success in school and to learning in general. I teach all subjects to a class of fourth graders. This is my first year there, but they are a high performing school, filled with students eager to advance themselves in all academics when given the appropriate tools.

This is my first year at this school. The classroom I am being placed into has never been used as a classroom. I am still a beginning teacher and have been unable to acquire a class library. When you purchase items with your class budget, you are unable to take them with you to your next school. I cannot afford to buy a class library myself, and if I buy it with my class budget, I will have no other money for other classroom supplies.

If I am able to get it donated, regardless of where my teaching career leads me, I will always be able to share the joy of reading with my students. This library will be a great start to establishing a full library for my students.

This donation will ensure my students ability to read in class. It is proven by reading daily, that students comprehension, word recognition, and vocabulary all grow. Without a class library, I will not be able to offer my students an opportunity to grow as readers.
