Mrs. Thedford from Van TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need individual book boxes, book bags, and non-fiction books for our classroom library.
My students walk into class each day knowing that they are loved and respected. This is key to teaching young learners. Especially, those from a Title I school. They are able to take control of their learning and be confident doing so.
Our school is in a small, East Texas town with a population of around 2,300 people.
However, we service several communities outside of Van, TX. We have a diverse classroom, representing different cultures and family backgrounds.
This is our first year to be moved back into a building after teaching in portables since the 2015 tornado that hit our community and destroyed our elementary school and damaged several others.
In our class we have a structure that allows every student to have a personal collection of books to read each day. Students are allowed to choose 5-8 books each week to read during station time each day.
Reading is essential to a student's academic success!
Students will be allowed to grab their personal book box and find a comfy spot in our classroom to sit and read. Their book box will be able to travel around the room with them, creating ownership for that student.
Non-fiction literature is key to establishing background knowledge and building vocabulary. Our classroom library is in desperate need of non-fiction books in order to make our students successful. Students will also use book bags to take books home to read with their parents.
