Mr. Lopes from Manchaca TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

My students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Yet, despite these obstacles, I genuinely believe they love to come to school. For some students, this is a chance to socialize, while for others, it's the only structured, safe place in their lives. Every student is different and has different needs, and I'm looking forward to addressing all the challenges that come with a new class. I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with a creative and meaningful learning experience. Help me build a solid classroom environment that our students will remember forever. We need an environment where they can learn and thrive! Together, we can achieve this!

My Project

Welcome friends and family. Thank you for checking out our project. In this project you will find lots of cultural books that are really appealing to students 3-5th grade. These books are various countries and have beautiful color pictures.

Many of my students have not traveled more than 5 miles from their homes.

These books will show them the world in a whole new light. It will also bring forward a curiosity that can only be found in amazing books. Books on Peru, Egypt, and South Africa will show our students that our whole is a huge place and they can learn about these countries and many other though this book set.

Lastly on this project is the #1 best selling book Cutting School, to help improve my teaching practice. Our school leadership team is doing a PD/ book study with this text.

Thank you again for your support!

Grades 3-5
