Ms. Wilmer from Hillsborough NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Library Lovin'

My students need more excitement in our classroom library! We'd love a Big Joe Bean Bag Chair and some Storex book bins for organizing. Plus we'd love a few new books from our favorite series!

My Students

I am lucky enough to teach a wonderful group of second graders at the #1 School in America! It's true! While our building is older than many of our teachers, it is full of learning, character, and love. We focus on CHAMP behaviors, which encourage students and teachers to be Caring, Helpful, Achieving, Motivated, Problem-Solvers.

As their teacher, my goal is to show my students how joyful ALL learning can be--whether it is states of matter, alliteration, reading fluently, the branches of government, or geometry.

I encourage this joy through games, art and drawing, hands-on activities, experiments, and inspiring read-alouds. My students are excited to learn new things and expand on what they already know.

Our school is in a small town in North Carolina. My students come from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and families. We are a Title 1 school, meaning the majority of our students qualify for free and reduced lunches.

My Project

We spend a lot of time in the library. I've taught my kids that whenever there is down time, it's a great time to pick up a book! My students really love to read series books, so we're looking for a few more of those! As a very diverse school, I've picked books with a variety of main characters that my kids can really relate to. It's wonderful when you can see yourself in your books!

Nothing is better than relaxing and reading!

We currently have a sad little bean bag chair that needs new filling. I just KNOW my students will adore using our new bean bag chair to get comfortable and read the day away!

My students are reading machines! A passion for reading leads to a passion for learning. I hope these materials will encourage and excite my students--and keep them reading and learning!
