Ms. Wellman from Pierre SD is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Us Display Our Learning

My students need a bookshelf to display books about what we are learning and the topics we are covering that they can easily see and help themselves.

My Students

When you look into my classroom at any given time of the day you will see up to 15 children who are full of energy and ready to learn. Most students lack previous schooling, so they are even more excited to have the chance to learn. They have had so many setbacks and challenges, but they are still such happy children.

My students do not care that the books are a little beat up, or that we do not have the latest technology that some other schools may have; they are simply happy to be there.

They have a strong desire to learn and will try their hardest to please you and themselves. They are not afraid to push themselves when they have the proper support and have frequently amazed me at the growth they achieve after such a short time in my room.

My Project

This bookshelf will be used to highlight texts that the students can and should read about the topics we are covering in class. This will help them to easily see these books, keep our classroom organized, and hopefully encourage them to read a range of different texts.

Exposure to new texts can really help a student become more interested in reading.

I am working my hardest to find what each student finds interesting and then leading them to those books and topics. This bookshelf will create a space for these books to be displayed and help encourage the students to read them.
