Hooray! This project is fully funded

I would like to start by thanking the truly amazing person who is reading my proposal. I offer my sincerest gratitude to you. I am in a first grade classroom which needs a library! I would love to have a library with leveled books from multiple genres. This includes non fiction, fiction, poetry and informational text. As the teacher, it is my responsibility to expose these new readers to a range of literature. With the appropriate funds, I could develop an amazing library. My first graders would be on grade level and in fact, surpass the first grade California Reading Standards. I believe that much of the ignorance in today's society is correlated to a decreasing interest in literature. We have the power to foster a love of reading at a very young age. Let's do it! It must be an inviting experience for a first grader. I will make this fantastic library a place to facilitate my first graders love of reading. Let's not only make our children literate, but also Reading Stars who LOVE to read.
