My kindergartners have reached that wonderful point in the year where they are beginning to really enjoy and appreciate literature. They have an undeniable thirst for new ideas and new materials. Even my slower learners are surprising me and reading short books all by themselves. This is why I love being a teacher. Of course, along with increased curiosity and use of my classroom library comes an increased need for materials. My students live in a low-income neighborhood and have very few resources at home. I want my library to have enough materials so that my children can enjoy them in the classroom and also have the opportunity to check them out to take home. This way they can share their excitement with their parents and gain extra reading practice outside of school. My students become particularly interested in books across a certain theme or by the same author. They are thrilled when they can make connections between books. Therefore, I am asking for books from some of our favorite authors: Mercer Mayer, Lois Ehlert, Ezra Jack Keats, Jan Brett, Judith Viorst and David Shannon. We also need more alphabet books, as this is a severely bare area on our shelves. Thank you so much for considering the opportunity to be a donor. Children all over the country see evidence of people who care for them thanks to Donors Choose.
