Ms. C. from Panorama City CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

No More Cat In the Hat Please!

My students need a variety of chapter books to continue their development of reading.

My Students

My students are survivors! In the midst of their challenging environment my students' only vehicle to escape reality is through the art of reading. We only have 4 books in our library that are age appropriate. Please help us!

My students are dreamers, they love to read.

They enjoy sitting in our class library and share with each other about the world they read about. Our school is located in a low income neighborhood, and does not have funds to provide a classroom library to each class. Out of the 30 books I have in the class, 4 are grade level appropriate. We can only visit the library once every two weeks. This is the only chance my students have to get two books. They love reading so much that they complete their books in 2-3 days tops, and then have to wait for two weeks to be able to get a new one. In addition, most of them stay until 6pm and cannot make it to the public library on time. The library is in not walking distance from the school, which discourages moms with babies from taking their little ones to the library.

My Project

Receiving these chapter books would be a true blessing for my students and me. I can already see their little faces light up and their minds at work as they read. Reading books that are leveled will help them improve in all academic areas and challenge their creative minds. I cannot wait to see their journal entries, and books reports, and see what a positive impact these books will have on them.

Every child deserves to be able to afford literature.

It breaks my heart when parents cannot buy books due the high cost books are currently being sold at. Most of my students do not know the smell of a new book, and that is an experience I yearn for each of my students to have. Please help me make this happen for them. - archiving project and jilting donors
