Mrs. Miller from San Antonio TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Feisty Firsties Just ‘Wanna’ Read!

My students need a variety of grade appropriate/leveled books for a fair opportunity for EACH ONE of them to become successful readers.

My Students

How can we close the achievement gap when my students do not have the necessary materials needed to succeed? I have 21 AMAZING and eager first graders in my classroom. No two students are alike. I have students who range from non-readers to above level readers. All which deserve to have a variety of books to choose from and continue to grow and develop a love of reading and learning. Our classroom library has a small amount of books that only a very limited number of my students can read at this time. If we could get our hands-on a variety of leveled books, our students' needs could be met!

My Project

Straight out of college, I began teaching 2nd grade. This past year, I took a leap and joined “The First Grade Team.” If you have any experience in the teaching field you’ll know first grade is a crucial year for a student. They truly become readers, become curious and eager to learn.

I now teach 22 AMAZING first graders.

My classroom is the most diverse I’ve ever had. I have students reading levels ranging from non-readers-the beginning of 3rd grade level. I have library books that can be beneficial to my average to high readers, however, my students other students desperately want to read, but the amount of books I have at their level is scarce.

If this project were to be funded then I would finally be able to provide appropriately leveled books for my first grade class and the ones to come.
