Ms. A. from S San Francisco CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help My Third Graders Read Nonfiction Texts!

My students need 7 sets of leveled non-fiction texts to read in our classroom.

  • $416 goal

This project expired on March 21, 2013.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students love to read non-fiction books that teach them more about the world. Our library is filled with fiction books and I would love to get some more informational texts into their hands!

I have 22 talented 3rd graders who love to read.

Since many of my students are English Language Learners, keeping their interest in reading is very important to me. Although they enjoy reading fiction books, they have a high interest in non-fiction materials. They are always looking for new books to read and share with their fellow classmates.

My Project

I would love to provide my students with some non-fiction book sets. These sets are level which will help me insure that each student is reading a book that is just right for them. These books will expand our library and help my students become comfortable reading informational material.

Many of you are aware of how the budget cuts have drastically hurt education.

It can be so difficult for teachers to provide their students with brand new books. Through your donations, I will be able to give my classroom the non-fiction texts that they need.
