Ms. Thomas from Trenton NJ is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Fill Every Shelf!

My students need leveled books and book bins to fill every shelf in our classroom library and one black and three Brother color ink cartridges.

  • $3,153 goal

This project expired on August 6, 2018.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My third graders are fascinated, fun-filled, energized learners. Unfortunately, many of them are economically disadvantaged. These students live in an urban area and do not have access to the same resources as students from many surrounding districts.

Despite their circumstances, they come to school each day with a sincere attitude about their education.

Learning new things becomes an important part of their daily routine. Please lend a hand in getting the things they need to help them achieve academic success and become lifelong learners.

My Project

My students love to read! With a new set a leveled readers, my students can enjoy reading. In addition, they will be able to comprehend new texts on their own reading level! The book bins will provide a space for us to store the books. The possibilities are endless when it comes to technology, not to mention a printer to go with it! We will be able to print essays, signs, center activities, and more with the Brother color and black toner cartridges. Students value their work more when teachers, parents, and administrators actually take the time to look at it!

Your donations to this project will open the doors of creativity and passion regarding reading in our classroom.

My students will love having the accessibility to print their work; especially in color! Imagine how the love of reading can take these students to many great places in their future. Including authentic text in our classroom library, can provide my students the chance to actually enjoy reading and ultimately, school!
