Ms. Rogers from Republic MO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Literacy is Cool, Building Lifelong Literacy Lovers

My Students

It always seems to be that being smart is not "cool." It is a teacher's job to combat that stigma and encourage students to embrace their "coolness." Creating a lifelong love of literacy in the classroom combats this stigma. It is my goal to make literacy 'cool' through embracing reading in class.

They come from a variety of socio-economical and racial backgrounds and academic levels.

In my classroom specifically, I teach 8th grade English. My students have a variety of academic needs, ranging from IEP and ELL students to students that are far above grade level.

My Project

I am requesting a variety of fiction novels including Stormbringers, We are All Made of Molecules, and the first two books in the City of Ember series to help build my classroom library. I strongly believe that in an English classroom students should have ready access to all genres of books. By just having novels in the classroom, students see that a literary environment is being fostered. My students will have time each day to independently read a book of their choosing. Having novels accessible in the classroom allows students more time to read by not having to go to the library to select a book each time. By setting aside time each day in class to read, my students learn how important reading is in their every day lives and how much of a positive impact it can have on their grades in every class, not just English, as strong literacy skills are a key component to succeeding academically.

Donating to my classroom library will help create a literary environment in my classroom, help students learn to love reading, and help them become more successful academically.
