Hooray! This project is fully funded

Please give the gift of reading to my little peanuts!! My first graders are really beginning to blossom in reading. They are starting to appreciate and enjoy books. I would like to continue their interest by giving them a wide range of books that they may use and borrow from our classroom library. I have been lucky to loop with my kids, meaning I was their teacher in kindergarten and I am lucky to be their teacher in first grade. I have watched my students fall in love with reading and get very excited when it’s time to read. I want my students to love reading and to realize the joy that comes with becoming an avid reader. In order to do this, I need a leveled library for my classroom so that I can guide my students to read their individual levels. They need rich stories that they can engage in and truly comprehend. Unfortunately, by the middle of the year, they have pretty much read everything in my classroom library. I'm looking to enhance our classroom library by adding more books and storage for them. My enthusiastic learners are a class of 21 kids that include ESL learners, kids with special needs and children that are gifted and talented and almost all have free/reduced lunches. We need more exciting and interesting storybooks for our classroom library, as well as some storage (a bookshelf) to keep them organized. Your help and generosity will help my students experience the adventures and joy that can happen when you read. I also hope that through your donation, I will be able to better instill a life-long love for reading in my students that will continue as they grow. Thank you so much! Love, The Little Peanuts
