Ms. Shephard from Los Angeles CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Our Favorite Books Are Falling Apart!

My students need 28 engaging books to replace the ones we've loved to death.

  • $220 goal

This project expired on July 5, 2014.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The first grade students in room 3 love to read! We love to read at school, and we love to read at home.

We have a bookcase of favorite books we like to read together with our classmates, we have a listening center where we can hear the stories and follow along, and we have a library where we can check out a book every day and take it home to read with our parents and siblings.

My Project

Our favorite books have been read so many times, they are falling apart! Even though our teacher and parents do their best to extend their lives by covering them with contact paper and reinforcing them with tape, some of them just need to be replaced.

Please help us have new books that we will read and share and love for years to come.

Reading helps us learn and become smarter and prepare for lives full of adventure. We love to read!
