Mrs. G. from Spokane WA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Non-Fiction Reading

My students need non-fiction books, photo books, and a book stand.

  • $553 goal

This project expired on April 14, 2009.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach a brilliant bunch of second grade students. We are high-need, low income school.

Students need a variety of reading material at hand in order to become engaged readers! Second graders love non-fiction text which we currently have very little of in our classroom. We also have limited space in which to display books.

I found this great bookstand which needs little space, yet provide a front faced view of books. This provides excitement and motivation to read non-fiction text. We study communities and bees in second grade, and the texts I have chosen will enhance our curriculum units!

Only through your generous gifts can we provide excellent reading opportunities for our students. Our children need to read non-fiction books which creates learning opportunities and motivation to learn more! Thank you for your willingness to make a difference!
