Ms. Leibbrand from Lynnwood WA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learn To Love Reading

My students need books that are engaging, and relatable. Stories such as "Dragons Love Tacos," "Mixed Up Fairytales," and "Don't Touch This Book!" pique children's interest, get them laughing, and encourage them to keep reading.

My Students

A diverse population of students make up our small classroom community of 22 students. Every child has a unique identity, including their personalities, culture, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, family makeup, and English Language Learner status.

Every one of my second grade students are bright and full of potential.

As a classroom, our differences are what empower and strengthen us. Our goals are to support one another in our social, emotional, and academic learning, as supported by our motto: "Teamwork Makes the Dream Work."

My Project

"Dragons Love Tacos," "Don't Open This Book," and "Diary of a Worm." Humorous and relatable titles in a classroom library grab students' attention and get them excited about reading. This excitement is crucial to developing a lifelong love of literacy.

Second grade is the time when students are developing foundational reading skills that go beyond phonics and comprehension.

Children are just beginning to explore the world of literature. By providing accessible and engaging material, we plant the seeds that grows motivated learners.

My students love to buddy read, nestled in cozy corners in the classroom, or sprawled out shoulder to shoulder on the carpet. This project will fund a collection of stories that include specific student interests, a range of reading levels, and lots of opportunities for laughs and conversation among peers.
