Dear Donors, I teach a wonderful third grade class in the South Bronx. They have such a love for reading and learning through books. Unfortunately, I do have many struggling readers who are not constantly exposed to books outside of the classroom. These students I work with consistently whenever I have a free period. Sadly, I do not have a large library, being that this is only my second year teaching. I do have books that are at the third and fourth grade level. I do not have many books within the lower levels which I am in great need of for the struggling readers and even my English Language Learners. A leveled library would be a wonderful resource for not only these students but for the entire class. Students could read books at their level and I would even be able to track their growth. It would benefit the children greatly and It would be a dream come true to have appropriate tools to assist all my students. Thank You!
