Ms. Kent from Middletown OH is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

MOtivated (Williams) Readers

My students need interactive early literacy books that will help show them the joys of reading.

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day with big smiles on their faces, eager to learn. They genuinely want to be at school because they realize we have a strong community where we help each other learn and grow.

I teach at a Title I school where majority of our students did not have the opportunity to attend preschool.

100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch, and most students receive food bags for the weekend. Despite these hardships, my students are enthusiastic and try their best every day!

My Project

Since it is important to establish a love for reading at an early age, my students need more exposure to children's books that they genuinely love.

I have seen the pure joy Mo Williams' books have brought to my students as soon as they lock eyes on the cover.

These interactive books help children be fully immersed in their reading experiences. They provide opportunities for students to independently practice fluency or to collaborative with each other by participating in Reader's Theater.

With you generous donation, my students will be using Mo Williams' books in our classroom library on a daily basis.
