Ms. Grcar from Cleveland OH is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Inspiring My Students to Read

My students need more books for the classroom library and bean bag chairs and padded floor seats to explore the books.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are fun loving and wiggly 5-6 year olds! They love to play and make new friends! They love play doh and math manipulatives, anything hands on! They love to dance and make secrets handshakes with each other.

They are just getting used to school, and are a bit shy and scared at times, but the affection they show each day in the form of hugs and high fives is incredible.

They are all from low income, urban areas and not all have access to educational materials at home.

My Project

Through this project, I want my students to receive more books of interest to add to our small classroom library. My students are so curious and I want to show them they can learn so much through books.

More books will help them to engage them and learn through the experience of reading for pleasure.

The reading bean bag chair and padded seat are needed so they can really relax and associate reading with comfort and fun. As of now, our "reading corner" consists of a rug and a few stuffed animals. I want to re-vamp it for these kids as a reading oasis! I want this area to be irresistible for them!!
