Mrs. Almon from Hartford CT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I Spy

My students need 18 I Spy Series books.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My class are energetic learners. They are working hard to get to second grade. They have many obstacles standing in their way: lack of stable home environments, siblings are raising siblings due to parents' work situations, high mobility from apartment to apartment, etc. My students do not come to school with supplies. I supply them with the necessary materials for the class and home. We are working together to get them to the next step!

My students need more resources for guided reading time. I find that my students grow bored from the centers and activities I provide them. They are becoming competent in these centers. I need to find more activities to challenge and encourage my students.

The I Spy books will provide a necessary center during guided reading time. It will challenge my students and encourage their reading and communication skills. My students will be challenged by trying to read and solve the riddles. It will also expose them to a different genre of text.

You can help my guided reading time come alive. I know the I Spy center will be a hit! I need your help! Please help my students challenge themselves by working hard to read and solve the riddles in the I Spy books by donating to this grant.
