Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hello. I am a Kindergarten and First Grade Special Education teacher in the South Bronx. I have recently been inspired by my students' love for Dr. Seuss and his classic, easy to read stories such as the Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. I happen to currently have 3 copies of Green Eggs and Ham, and everyday during independent reading time I have 3 students get the book and sit and read it over and over. While the book is slightly above their reading level, they are easily able to adapt to Dr. Seuss's repetitive, rhyming style. Through reading this book over and over again, my students are learning new words and building their stamina for reading! What if we had a library full of Dr. Seuss books for all of my students to engage in? Imagine the possibilities! I have selected a variety of titles from the "Beginners I Can Read" series as well as the "Bright and Early" board book series from Barnes and Noble to make this a reality in my classroom. Please consider donating these treasured tales to students who are often discouraged when it comes to reading because of their learning difficulties. This will be a gift that will keep on giving, not only to my current students, but to all who will pass through the classroom in the future. Thank you for considering making a donation to our classroom and let's work together to make reading success a reality for all!
