Ms. Blair from Taft CA is requesting books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Hands On Books!

Help me give my students books that are in their reading zone. My classroom library is really sparse in my Kindergarten and 1st grade levels and majority of my students really need more reading options in these levels.

Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

My students are the most genuine kind-hearted human beings who are gaining a love for reading!

As we are finally able to be back in the classroom this year, it is my mission to get my kids hands on as many books as possible.

In our community, more than 90% of families are from low income households. Only a handful of families have books at home or internet to read books online.

My Project

Due to everything the last few years, majority of my students didn't get the opportunity to get their hands on any books. As a result, they were unable to practice reading, resulting in majority reading 2-3 grade levels below.

My classroom library is very minimal in those levels so students are running out of new stories.

Being able to fill these sections with new books that they love will be absolutely amazing and make a world of a difference for these kids. Lets make up for lost time and get these kiddos hands on more books!
