Mrs. Sundberg Kraft from Brooklyn CTR MN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Noteable Nonfictions!

My students need nonfiction picture books that they can read independently. Harvesting Hope and Sit In: How Four Friends Stood Up by Sitting Down will help develop knowledge about the Civil Rights Movement.

My Students

I teach in a Title One school in Brooklyn Center, MN where eighty-five percent of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch and breakfast. Many of our students receive bags of food on the weekends from a local church.

Our students have challenges that no one should face but come to school daily to learn and be in a place where everyone cares about them.

Many of our students are second language learners but are excited to learn.

We are an Arts school and our students are encouraged to use their imaginations and creativity on a daily basis. I believe in my students and their ability to succeed.

My Project

These books will have a prominent place in my classroom library, hopefully engaging and encouraging my students to choose to read nonfiction books more often.

Harvesting Hope and Sit-In: How Four Friends Stood Up by Sitting Down will help my students realize that there was more to the Civil Rights Movement than just Doctor King's speech.

These books will also help my students see themselves reflected in books.

Reading is a priority in my classroom and I am trying to create an extensive nonfiction library as I have with fiction materials. Nonfiction picture books will be more engaging and encourage class discussions.
