Teacher Hay from Prescott Valley AZ is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

For the Love of Books!

My students need books for our library, ones that they truly enjoy reading reading on a daily basis.

My Students

“It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” My students truly show this everyday in each choice that they make. When walking into my classroom what you will see is creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration.

My fifth grade students make teaching fun!

Everyday they come into class with a smile on their face and ready to take on the day. They are a community of learners who benefit most when learning from one another.

My Project

I have been trying to collect books that are of a higher reading level and non-fiction books for my fifth-graders, but it takes time and money. My students have been asking me for certain books like Harry Potter, Dork Diaries, and the What Was and Who Was books. Being a new teacher I started off the year with only a few books and I actually thought I was teaching second grade, then I got moved to fifth grade. Being an English teacher, and having a passion for reading myself, I would like my students to have books that will instill a love of reading within them as well.
