Ms. Hinkle from Buffalo MO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Enhancing Our Cozy Classroom Library

Help me give my students the reading tools they need to be successful. I am teaching fourth grade, and I have students who are struggling with fluency. The whisper phones and books would help our classroom!

My Students

My students in Missouri are experiencing new things all the time and I would like to better support them with learning tools. This year, they have gotten the opportunity to use a Chromebook for the first time. This group is so excited to learn in new ways, and they show their creativity daily. I hope to find other new ways to engage my students.

I am a first-year teacher.

My classroom didn't come with many supplies. My classroom library is short of books, and I am looking to find better books to add to my little collection. My students struggle to find books they enjoy, and I am looking to spark their interest with an updated library and new reading tools.

My Project

The new materials would engage my students more. My students are drawn to graphic novels and they would love to read new books. I have had several ask me to include more, but I do not have the funds. I hoping to add more to my library soon! With the new addition of these books, my students will LOVE reading time.

The whisper phones and magnetic letters will help my struggling readers.

With these tools, I hope to increase their fluency and spelling. I know my students will even be engaged with these learning tools! They are very hands-on and I want to support them as best as I can.
