Help me give my students high-interest books and rug for their classroom library.
When asked, my favorite grade has always been fourth grade. As a student, and now teacher, I can clearly remember diving into one of my all time favorites, Tuck Everlasting, and being in absolute shock at the thought of writing a five-paragraph essay. It's been about thirteen years since then and I still feel the anticipation and excitement when reading and writing. I cannot help but want the same for my students.
My students are curious, spunky and incredibly kind - they are absolutely the best!
They share the same enthusiasm and joy when reading. Although some may not be a fan of Tuck Everlasting, they do have a varied taste in literature. Many of my students do not have access to literature at home. Although, we have a spectacular school library, where students have access to high-quality books, our school serves about 400 students who love to read! Having a classroom library will allow me to maximize their strengths and instill a love for learning and literature.
I am a first year teacher so there are plenty of things I need to purchase in order to create a welcoming and comfortable classroom for my students. Many of the things I need to buy are pricey, thankfully Donors Choose can assist in those costs.
I would like to make reading something my kids WANT to do rather than NEED to do.
We are requesting high-interest books, including Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Percy Jackson, and rug for our classroom library. The rug is going to give my classroom a comfortable feel. It will be placed right by the classroom library, where students can pick out a good book - maybe one in the cart - and lounge.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
