Mrs. Nielsen from Grand Jct CO is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Little Librarians!

Help me give my students the chance to feel successful in finding books that will help them become life-long readers! My students would gain a leveled library cart with bins to help our classroom library become organized!

My Students

In 2nd grade students are still active and eager to learn. Anything new and exciting in the classroom will definitely help motivate them!

I work at a Title I school where most students don't have a traditional home life.

Oftentimes students come to school and that is their "safe place." This is why making my classroom engaging and a special place to learn is so important to me. If they can't get special things at home-- why not let them experience that at school?

My students and I would appreciate any help you could offer. It's the little things that makes life (and learning) great!

My Project

Second grade is a huge year for kiddos and their development in reading. My school district bought new literacy curriculum that gives students a chance to be successful. A major part of literacy development is finding a love for reading.

If my students were to gain organization in their classroom library, it would help them navigate through books to help them find just right books.

Every week, students get the chance to go "shopping" for their books for the week. It is vital they are able to find books that are just right for them. In a organized classroom library, students will feel confident in finding just right books.
