My Students

Science! My students love science. When I teach science, my students are so excited. When they go to read, the science books are the ones they seek out.

My students come from underprivileged homes.

That has not stopped their desire to reach for the stars. They are so excited to be at school everyday, because they want to learn. They are hardworking students. They also love science. Which is why they are in need of more science books.

My Project

My students are required to read at school and for homework. There are so few science books to choose from. When I see the books, that I know interest the students. I want to be able to spark their interest to read more. The 24 books I selected contain a lot photos. The photos help to make meaning to a new language much easier. The books will also make my science lessons more meaningful.

Your donation would allow students to continue to love learning and reading.

You will help to fill a fifth grade classroom library that is very skinny right now. My job is to light a spark in children that I teach. You will help me light that spark.
