Mrs. Ramirez from Brownsville TX is requesting books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Love of Books

My students need various chapter books to continue their love of reading. They need these books to continue learning and being creative. They love getting lost in books.

My Students

My students are very energetic, ambitious, and hard working 7-10 year olds. Our school is in a highly economically disadvantaged area and we are limited with the resources that we have to work with. This, however, does not discourage them from doing their best in class and with their school work.

Our motto is to keep trying and to always try your best.

Higher order thinking is the future and it is my job to get my students motivated and ready.

My Project

Students will be reading these books throughout the day. As they are done with their regular school work, they are able to read these books to pass the time. They will not be playing but instead reading. Making memories and connections of what they read and how it might relate to them in real life.

They love to get lost in books.

My students connect to a character in a story and then want to read more about them. What happened next? What did they do? Where did they go? How did it happen? Giving them this opportunity is GREAT! It keeps their love of reading alive.
