Mrs. Mathews from Qulin MO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

New Classroom Library Books

My students need more books to choose from in our classroom library. I have selected books that I know my students will be excited to read.

My Students

My students are growing up in a small, tight-knit community. Many of them have known each other since their first day of kindergarten together. They are energetic and excited about pretty much everything! The majority of the students in my small class come from middle-class families, with a few families living under the poverty line. My kiddos are hardworking and compassionate. They are amazing little people and I am blessed to be a part of their lives.

My Project

What is more exciting than a kid who loves to read?! One of the many great things about teaching is being able to get my students excited about reading. For this project, I have selected a variety of books, such as Ball Park Mysteries, Cam Jansen, Amelia Bedelia, and Junie B. Jones that I know will catch their attention and different interests. By having these books in our very own classroom library, I will be able to help them select books that are perfect for their level and their interests so that we can get the most out of their reading experience. Having access to our own library will also help us maximize our time in the classroom, rather than having to make trips back and forth to the school library all of the time.
