Ms. Hill from Tolleson AZ is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

New, Updated Books That My Students Will Enjoy

My students need books that they want to read. The titles chosen are ones that my students have asked for especially the books sets of Percy Jackson, Captain Underpants and Judy Moody.

My Students

My students are 3rd-8th graders who come from different backgrounds and ethnicities. A lot of them do come from low income and single parent households. Also in our school we do have a lot of foster kids, so they don't have much at home and I want to be able to at least give them something to look forward to here at school. They are all great kids and have a great attitude towards learning. A lot of my students tell me they don't have a lot of books at home to read, and I want to be able to have them all reading the books they love. I feel that everyone can be a great reader if given the correct tools. I want to help my students become great readers and to do so I need to have books that interest them.

My Project

I am using this project to update the books in our library. A lot of our chapter books are old and outdated. The students don't find them interesting and so they are losing interest in reading at all. I feel that if I update the shelves and mix the new in with the old we can bring back their love of reading.

My goal is to have every student in our school with at least one book checked out at all times.

I really need these books to be able to attain that goal and get my students reading again. My students need books that they want to read. The titles chosen are ones that my students have asked for especially the books sets of Percy Jackson, Captain Underpants and Judy Moody.
