Ms. Fisco from Minneapolis MN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

New Classroom Library!

My students need a classroom library! These mentor texts and book series will give them books to read and explore their imagination in the classroom!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students deserve to have the best learning environment possible--and that means they need a classroom library! I am a new teacher in a new school with a limited classroom library. I want to provide them with materials that will help them excel past grade level expectations.

My students are motivated and love learning!

Many of my students love to read and I want to give them material that will challenge them and continue to help them grow. They have been asking about many of the titles that I have chosen and these books would mean the world to us!

My Project

These books would be used on a daily basis. We will be implementing the Daily 5 strategies within our literacy block. Students will be encouraged to read to self, to a partner, and do other activities with their texts. Students will be taught how to choose books that are a perfect fit for their reading level. They will be able to use these texts to support their learning and development. They will read books such as The Mitten and Amilia's Notebook.

The donations for this project will improve my classroom because they will create a rich literacy environment.

Every classroom needs to have books and they deserve to have the best quality literature around them! I know they would appreciate this incredible donation towards our classroom learning. I want to give my students every opportunity to find their passion for reading!
