Ms. Townsend-Dyslexia from Hope AR is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

For the Love of Reading

Help me give my students more books to reads since they are reading through my classroom library faster than I can stock the shelves.

My Students

My students are simply amazing. They teach me more each day than I can ever teach them. They come to school ready to learn something new and love to be challenged. Everyday is an adventure and our classroom is full of laughter all the time. They love technology and find ways to incorporate it into all areas. They always challenge me to be a better teacher.

My students are hard workers and work daily towards their goals of being the best they can be no matter the challenges they face.

They give their all in everything they do, in and out of the classroom.

My Project

My students need books that will make them excited about reading. Our school was opened just two years ago and there are not many books for the students to check out and read from my classroom. My students made a list of books that they want to have in our classroom for this project.

Readers become better readers by reading independently.

If my students have access to more books then they will be able to read more and be successful in school and life. I want to encourage the love of reading in my classroom and that is difficult to do without an adequate library.
