Ms. Powell from Greenville SC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help a First Year Teacher Facilitate a Love for Learning

Help me give my students a classroom full of diverse and authentic texts! I strongly believe in the power of process art to supplement instructional practices. There are also several items to help facilitate this in my classroom!

My Students

My name is Harper Powell and I am so excited to start my first Donors Choose project!

I teach in a high poverty Title One school in Greenville, South Carolina.

I am a first year teacher and I am so excited to spend my first year with all 14 of my sweet firsties!

My school has a very high ESL (specifically Spanish-speaking) population. Most of my students are on free/reduced lunch. I am filled with joy to teach and my students are filled with joy to learn!

My Project

I strongly believe in process art as a supplement to instruction the in the classroom. Process art is art with a primary focus on the process rather than the product. I have added several items to help me facilitate this in my classroom!

Developing an interest in reading, and a love for books, creates a lifelong reader with an investment in the world around them.

First graders make a HUGE jump in their reading throughout the year through a good teacher, willingness to learn, and authentic/diverse texts.

Please help me facilitate all of this through donating the following items to my classroom! Thank you so much, have a great day!
