Mrs. M. from Doraville GA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Completing the Series!

My students need books to complete series. I have many of the first of a series in my classroom library but I lack the other books.

My Students

Books are my obsession. It breaks my heart to see a child who thinks of reading as a chore instead of a chance to go on a wild adventure. Help me inspire my students to travel to places way beyond their imaginations!

I teach in a high poverty school where most of the parents are immigrants with little to no education.

With little to no support at home, my kids need to have resources at school that most kids take for granted at home. My parents typically cannot even read the directions for homework, much less help them. My students are highly motivated and I need the resources to help them succeed. Our school is currently almost at twice the capacity and so our school library has become slim picking when we get to go due to the sheer number of students. I am trying to build up my personal library so that my student's learning is not impacted due to something out of our control.

My Project

I am asking for books to complete many series of books that I have in my classroom library. This is my first year teaching fifth grade so I am trying to build up my library of upper grade novels. I have bought several of the first of a series with my own money to see how my students like them. There are several that have been passed around and the students are asking for the sequels.

Your gift will make an impact because you are not just impacting the 62 students in my room this year but these will be enjoyed for years to come.

If you have ever shared in the joy of reading a series all the way through, you know how important having the entire series available is to a child.
