Mrs. Roth from Cologne MN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Give Me an L!

My students need a 2009 Britannica Library in order to do 4th grade research projects.

My Students

L stands for library, which is something that we don't have. Students could really use this encyclopedia set to help them research projects that they will do throughout the upcoming school year.

Students at our school are awesome!

We have small class sizes and parents that are very involved. Along with teaching the Core Knowledge curriculum, we also strive to teach our students how to be good characters and citizens in this world. We opened in 2008 with K-5th graders, and will add a class each year until we get to 8th grade. We have already outgrown our first building, and are currently building another building for our middle school students.

My Project

By having this set of encyclopedias, students will be able to use a reliable resource other than the Internet to research. Being able to use the encyclopedias will not only give the students correct information, but they will be able to learn how to use an encyclopedia and see how it is different than a regular book or Internet site.

The sooner that students learn how to use resources like an encyclopedia, the better off they will be down the road when doing research on their own.

Having this resource will help my students now and for the rest of their lives!
