Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Motivate my students to excel as super science readers by providing them with the nonfiction literature they need.

I am a fourth grade teacher in a high needs school district in need of various classroom materials to entice young learners to read, learn, and engage in hands-on science lessons.

We would love to keep our classroom library expanding and could benefit from nonfiction pictures books to spice it up.

My Project

My students need nonfiction picture books that focus on important science topics such as energy, force, motion, simple machines, and electricity to further their learning. Help entice my students to become better readers and more engaged scientists by exposing them to amazing literature.

By donating to our classroom project you will be providing my students with the necessary literature to take their reading skills and their inner Einstein to the next level.

Motivate my students to love to learn with new science picture books.
