Help me give my students a reading library with a variety of books they can choose from as well as two Chromebooks to keep their love for reading alive in creative ways!
I am a 3rd grade teacher teaching in a Title 1 school which means we live in a high poverty area. Our small community as well as our little Bloomington Elementary school was impacted by Hurricane Harvey over a year ago. As I think back and remember how we had to teach the whole year from our gyms locker rooms and then portable buildings because we could not return into our classrooms, this is when I realized how resilient my third graders were!
Hurricane Harvey took my classroom library of 6 years along with thousands of dollars of teaching material and supplies.
This did not stop the students or myself from being happy and excited about coming to school and learning everyday! We made it work even though we had only 4 gray walls and not in a Pinterest inspired classroom.

First and most importantly, I would love to rebuild my classroom library.
I had sets of chapter books that my third graders enjoyed reading during our DEAR time. Our classroom library is limited this year and the kids have gone through many books and eagerly await when I purchase new ones! I want to keep their love for reading!
I would also like to see my students reading not only with books but with technology in the classroom. As we know, technology plays a big role in kids lives everyday and I would love to bring Chromebook's into my classroom to practice the skills they need to be successful. Many of our kids struggle with reading comprehension and fluency and I feel if I was able to bring technology for reading, my students could get into programs such as Accelerated Reader, research during our genius hour and station time. Please help bring our young minds this type of technology for math and science applications as well. We would be so appreciative as most students don’t own any technology at home.
