Ms. Temple from Nerstrand MN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Our Books Are Falling Apart!

My students need 30 copies of "My Father's Dragon" and 3 copies each of "The Dragons of Blueland" and "Elmer and the Dragon".

I teach a multi-age class of 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade students in a small charter school. My students LOVE to read, but our favorite books are falling apart from being read over and over again.

With our budget cuts, we cannot replace our books or buy new titles to enrich our students' reading education!

My students need a class set of "My Father's Dragon", and 3 copies each of the next books in the series, as they will be hooked after the first one!

You can make the difference for the students in my class! You can provide the high quality literature that they need in order to keep them fired up about reading, and having fun while they are learning!
