My Students

My students are amazing and really want to learn as much as I want to teach them! My students are around 11 and 12 years old, most are from Latin America and receive free lunch. Our school is huge. We have over 1,000 students, and we lack all major resources. We go from PreK to 8th grade, with mono- and bilingual classes. Lastly, we are in the fourth largest city in our state. Thank you for reading about my students!

My Project

Hi Everyone- I am requesting funds to buy books for our classroom library. I would like to have books that are at or near grade level for my students- and books that they would love to read! I have a few books now, but my students aren't really interested in the types of books we have right now- so I picked out a few books that I think they will love.

I always let students borrow books so they can read them everywhere they want.

I also provide them with the last 15 mins of each day to read!

These books might be a great way to introduce a topic, such as if I am teaching about fractions- before I start the unit, it might be great to read them a book about it with pictures. It actually helps learning!

I hope you are able to donate to our classroom.
