Mrs. Joyce from Nampa ID is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I currently teach in a Title I (low income) elementary school. With 28 students, I have a wide range of abilities and needs. I also have a diverse socio-economic population of students, who come from a variety of home lives.

My students are brilliant, creative, and innovative.

They strive for success in everything that they do.

My students come to school everyday with an excitement to learn and a love to try new things. They also love any chance they get to collaborate with their peers and spread about the classroom as they dive into their work.

My Project

Although my students are in 5th grade, they are academically behind. Majority of my students are functioning on a 3rd grade academic level.

By providing my students with picture books and interactive games, such as the Mobi numerical tile game, my students will be able to work at their level in math.

This game requires students to create math equations, such as multiplication and subtraction.

Students will also be able to learn life and academic concepts through the requested picture books. Many of these books touch on academic skills, such as personification found in "The Pasta Family (Goes to Marinara Beach)."
