Mrs. Gomez from Mesquite TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Literacy is Where it all Starts!

Help me give my students leveled books that will allow me to meet their needs, Time Magazines that will expose them to relevant events around them, and a Spanish book series that they can enjoy!

My Students

This is a special group of individuals! I say individuals because they are so different from one another so it makes my classroom dynamics so fun.

However, one thing that they have in common is their hunger for learning.

When new concepts are being introduced they are all for it, ready to tackle the task at hand. When practicing a skill that they have learned, they delight themselves in showing one another what they have learned.

These students make my job an everyday adventure that I am more than motivated to take with them.

My Project

With the use of leveled readers, students are able to read the text and also be challenged. We would use these in a small group setting where I can listen in and have a conversation with them about what they are reading.

It is very important for students to read books in a language that they understand.

For that reason I have included Spanish books that they would read for pleasure. I have some in English, and the kids LOVE them. My Spanish selection is limited and would love to expand it.

The Time magazines would be used to read on relevant events that they would be interest in.
