Mr. Bassett from Saint Louis MO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Library Construction for Ongoing Literacy Introduction!

My students need a plethora of fiction and non-fiction texts that they can read and reread as they grow in ability. These book sets will be an awesome addition to the classroom library!

My Students

My students are eager learners who are ready to dive into learning how to read and write! These children are passionate about getting the best education possible.

They work hard every day to acquire the literacy skills that will propel them into their careers!

Every school-day matters to these children because they want to be the best in everything they do.

My learners come from a tough neighborhood but they are even tougher! They love to show empathy and enjoy collaborating with the entire school.

My Project

This is such an important project for us. Our first grade classroom library needs help! My students need to be challenged every day to improve their reading abilities. Our books are outdated and in really bad shape. My students deserve books that are research-based and proven to promote proper literacy standards.

We would love to incorporate these 2 book sets into our daily literacy instruction!

Every time my students get a chance to read quality fiction and non-fiction texts, their futures get brighter. We work hard to develop as learners every single day and these books set will be a fantastic addition to our reading acquisition!
