Mrs. Phelps from Skiatook OK is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Pre-K Classroom Library

My students need these books to help fill our classroom library. We will be beginning a new literacy program and these books would make a great addition to the program.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

This year I have 16 amazing PreK students with bright minds and different learning styles. They are each unique in that some are visual, kinetic, tactile and reflective learners. Being a new teacher I have limited supplies to help reach all of these different styles of learning.

My students love to hear me read a book out loud to them and they love to hear books on the smart board.

They get so in tune to what the story is about. At this age we are beginning to learn the sequencing or order of events in a book. After a book is read to them they answer questions about the books. It is so fun watching them learn, grow & be involved in the learning process.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the new Literacy program we are adopting next year. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy-I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they look at the books independently! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to touch, feel and look at these books. All of these books have been chosen with my students & our new program in mind.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that we have read together that they can then try to reread and identify vocabulary words they have learned.

They will also be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed word.
