Ms. El Basha from Stone Mountain GA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

I have an amazing group of students! They are full of energy and come to school ready to learn. My students deserve activities that are fun and engaging. With the appropriate resources, they will be able to learn and have the opportunity to show their academic growth.

Majority of my students are from low-income families and live in a single parent home.

The students in my classroom come from diverse backgrounds. They range in their needs and in abilities. I want my students to have access to materials that would enrich their learning, such as expanding their reading and math skills.

My Project

This project will provide my students with a variety of book options for our new listening center. They love to read, but as first graders, they' re still learning how to be readers.

One great way to learn how to be a good reader is to listen to someone else read.

I read with and to my students daily. With these books, my students will be able to use their new headphones, during Workshop Time. They will also begin to see themselves as true independent readers. Allowing students to choose from several stories will allow them to be more productive as they listen to the story.
