Essential Classroom Supplies and Books

My students need books and magazine subscriptions that will inform them about the world, and prep books that prepare them for the ACT and SAT.

My Students

Do you remember what it was like the first time you read a book that you couldn't put down? My students are just now discovering books that capture their imaginations. They are also at a time in their lives when they must prepare for the SAT and ACT.

My students are my life.

Coming from low socioeconomic homes they have so few material things but so much potential. One of my students comes to my room several times a week just to check out my books that the library doesn't offer. She loves asking me about the different books and receiving one on one help to choose her next book to read. I realized at that moment that I need to give them more. I don't want that little girl, or any of my students, to make a bad choice because they have nothing else to do. I want them to be able to escape reality with a good book that they will not only enjoy but also prepare them for the ACT or SAT.

My Project

These books and subscriptions will not only prepare my students for the ACT and SAT but also encourage them to discover their love of reading. Students will learn new vocabulary through reading stories that are enjoyable. My students must prepare for the ACT and SAT now for them to be successful in life.

My parents instilled in me a love of reading since as long as I can remember.

Some of my students have not discovered their love of reading yet because they just haven't found the right book. A lot of my students are not prepared for the SAT or ACT. A donation to this project, even if it's only $5, could instill a lifelong love of reading in many lives. This love of reading will lead to better, happier futures. As research proves, the more students read, the better off they will be!
