Ms. Furtado from Sunnyvale CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Library Books

My students need books for our classroom library including the "Magic School Bus Science Chapter Books" and titles like "Shredderman". These books will be used for years to come by my students. They love to read and would be thankful for some new books!

My Students

Do you remember what it feels like to sit down and read a good book. My students would love to have access to their own classroom library!

My students love to read!

Due to funding cuts my students are only able go to the library once every other week for their assigned library time. They choose to go to the school library at lunch on their own almost everyday because my classroom library is hurting for new books. My students have read almost everything I have available for them in only a few months of school.

My Project

With your help my students will be able to expand their reading abilities and choices. Students will be able to read what interests them during our daily reading time. They will also be able to take more comprehension tests through our school's Accelerated Reader Program.

Through these new books students will expand their vocabulary, reading comprehension skills, and develop a love of reading that will last a lifetime!

Please help my students keep their love of reading alive!
