More Books!

My students need more books. These books will be added to our library and used during instruction.

My Students

I am one of the second grade teachers at an elementary school in Little Rock, Arkansas. The student population is 99% free and reduced lunch and 55% of our students are English Language Learners. Our students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom.

Despite the many challenges they face, our students are eager to learn and do their best.

We are looking forward to a new year full of meaningful learning experiences.

Our school is working towards becoming a "90/90/90 School". A "90/90/90 School" is a school that has at least 90% combined minority, at least 90% free or reduced lunch qualified students, and at least 90% of its students successful on standardized assessments. This type of school would appear to be doing something unexpected that is leading to a high level of student achievement under challenging circumstances.

We have a lot of work to do to meet this goal and have 90% of our students successful on end of the year assessments and performing on/above grade level. By donating to this project, you are helping us succeed.

My Project

Your donation will help us receive books that are needed for instruction this year. In December and January, we will learn about Antarctica and different arctic animals. We will enjoy reading and learning about reindeer/caribou, arctic hares, polar bears, walruses, seals, penguins, beluga whales, and other arctic animals. Because of your donation, we will also receive a variety of books to add to our library. These books will be read every day during independent reading time and literacy rotations.

By donating to our project, you will help us have a successful year.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”

Thank you for your help.
