Mrs. Dowden from Aubrey TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need high interest books and in order to have book clubs, I needs multiple copies of some books. I know the classroom library is a growing thing, but this would be a great start.
Students in our school are amazing! They come to school every day and work hard. We have a very diverse group of students when talking about ethnicity and I would love to get books on their hands that speak to all the diverse groups I will be serving. The students I will have next year are on so many different reading levels and in such varied places in their learning but they all work equally hard. I have built relationships with this group of students for the last 4 years and I’m excited to have them in their last year of elementary school. They have shown they are ready to start doing the work of students who are prepareing for middle school!
These books will help my students learn by helping them relate to characters. My students need these books about kids who go through similar experiences and deal with issues that they deal with. When my students realize that they can relate to books, they become invested in reading and develop a love of reading that cannot be taken away. They will learn that when times are hard, they can read. When they feel lonely, they can find a friend by reading. When they are *gasp* bored, they can read and be transported into a different place that boredom cannot touch.
