Mrs. Brown from Cherryville NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I Want To Read, But I Can't Find My Books

My students need 2 student work organizers.

I teach 1st grade at a public school in NC. Each student is unique and special-my job is a new adventure every single day! Reading is truly the most precious gift that I can give to my students. I just love my job!

My students read independently daily. However, I have a problem-I NEED a "system" to put in place so each student can find the books they can read independently. I have been looking for something and guess what? I hit jackpot today! I found exactly what I have been looking for!

I found a wire rack that holds 12 individual boxes. (I need 2 sets of these for my class.) Each child will have a box of books on their reading level to read independently. My students will be able to pick up their book box and take it to their desk to begin reading. Gosh, these racks will be a dream to have in my classroom! This project will help my students so much since they will know exactly which box is theirs. No longer will they become frustrated by trying to read a book that is too difficult for them. Instead, they will feel successful because they will be able to read the books in their box!

Thank you so much for reading my proposal. If you would like to help improve my students reading skills, maybe I have inspired you to make a donation-remember, any amount will help! It will truly make a difference and your money will be very well spent! I hope you have a wonderful day!
