Mrs. Lundy from De Leon Spgs FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Engaging Students Through Amazing Literature

My students need 5 copies of 18 chapter books to add to our classroom library to use during literature circles to enhance their reading experiences.

  • $555 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My 3rd grade students are Super Stars. Everyday they come to learn and love to read literature. The majority of my students are low economic and have a Hispanic background. Many times the only books my students get to read all year are the books in the classroom library.

Everyday I see them want to improve their reading ability. They LOVE to go get books to read. My problem is I do not have many sets of books for literature circles.

I want to provide them through literature circles and other various activities the ability to think deeper about the books they read. To do this I need multiple copies of books that allow the students to think.

Your gift to my classroom will help shape the future thinkers of America. You are helping my students learn skills they can apply to any book they read. Thank you!
