My students need 4 sets of new books. The books we have in our classroom are falling apart. The students are getting discouraged about reading because of these worn out books.
Reading is the one of the most important skills that a child must learn. The joy of reading through being able to pick a book of your choice is so very important. Seeing the light in a child's eyes that finds a book that they can read by themselves is inspiring.
I have a group of bright eyed second graders who would love to get their hands on a new book.
Here in the south, like most places, so many of them are from homes that are barely making ends meet. We are located in a rural community and the nearest library is eight miles away. We are scheduled to go to our school library only once a week. I would love for my students to have new books, but funding is low and the books that are in my room are tattered and torn. I know they are getting discouraged looking at these worn out books. I would love to see the sparkle in their eye when they get their hands on a new book. These books will help them across the curriculum to learn about new cultures, geography, famous people, and holidays. What a wonderful way to learn to read!
These books will help my students learn about other new people and places, as well as, holidays around the world. They will read about famous people who changed the lives of many people. Picking up a book that they can read by themselves will help them build the confidence to try new things and go to new places. It is my wish for my students to enjoy reading and being able to read a book they have picked for themselves.
Without the ability to read, the door to the world is shut to them.
I want that door open so that they will feel free to dream. My students need your help to make this dream possible. Please support my students by helping them have new classroom books.
