My students need books to help kickstart their year of reading!
My educational philosophy is that every child deserves a quality education, regardless of where he or she grows up. I work in a school in the poorest Congressional district in the country-and money seems to get tighter every school year. I teach 8th grade English-Language Arts.
I teach English as a Second Language (ESL) students.
While they are bright and eager to learn, they often struggle with basic skills. Many of my students are voracious readers, but few of them have books in their homes. They are able to read the books in our classroom library; however, we run out of the books quickly! Many students have read nearly all of the books I currently have.
Adding new books to our classroom library would greatly invigorate my students and their love for reading. Reading gives them a window on new worlds and increases their knowledge base. It also is an enjoyable activity they love doing. They would love to get new books to add to our collection. We read every day after lunch for 25 minutes, they read independently at different points during the day, and they are supposed to read at least 25 minutes for homework. These books will get read and put on requested lists as soon as they arrive in our classroom library!
With your help, we can restock our classroom library, thereby allowing my students to read new books and enabling me to foster their love of learning.
With your generous donation, my students will be given a chance to continue to flourish even amid difficult circumstances. Thank you from all of us.
