My students need books, books and more books! We need multiple copies of new titles, such as "All the Pretty Girls," "Hoopster," and "Secret Story of Sonia Rodriguez."

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are slowly but surely learning to love and value reading. I need more books to keep this momentum going in my classroom, and for the rest of their lives!
I teach at an underprivileged school in Texas.
My kids are constantly asking for new books to read. I need as many books as I can get to add to my library, in order to ensure my kids are having great experiences while reading. My goal this year is to make my students love and value reading. The demographics for our school are as follows:
•90% of students are first-generation college bound
•80% of students are economically disadvantaged
•95% of students are Hispanic or African American
•Most students enter our at least one grade level behind in Math and Reading
My students LOVE to read. They are craving more books that fit their interests and their reading level!
In my classroom, we have reading workshop everyday. During this time, the students are expected to read their "Just Right Book." This means that each student needs to be reading a book that is on his/her level, and is also interesting to him/her. I need a plethora of books for my students to choose from in order to meet these requirements. They are expected to have their "Just Right Book" with them at all times during the day in case there is any extra time in which they can read even more!
My students need books, books and more books! We need multiple copies of new titles such as All the Pretty Girls, Hoopster, and Secret Story of Sonia Rodriguez. The only way to ensure my students learn to read, and learn to value reading is by providing them with a plethora of books to choose from on a regular basis. At this point, my students are constantly asking for new books to add to our library because we simply don't have enough. WE NEED MORE!
Help me help my students learn to love and value reading!
