Mrs. Peterson from Pasadena TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Puzzling, Isn't It?

Help me give my students the gift of puzzles while in the library. My students love coming to the library and adding puzzles will be one more thing to help our library be a place of learning.

My Students

Students come in and check out books in addition to hearing stories and doing activities. My favorite part of the day is when kids come in with huge smiles on their faces because they loved the book they were reading! Students also rush in to tell me when they have improved in their reading levels.

I have over seven hundred students in pre-kindergarten through fourth grade that I see at least once a week.

My students love coming to the library and getting new books. I serve all types of students: kids who are on, below, or above level, students in special education or bilingual programs, as well as students in our ABLE/autistic program. We have a wide range of books for these kids to choose from and are constantly updating our collection to find books that will entice these kids to become lifelong learners. My campus is a Title One campus and we face many challenges in holding a child's interest. Many of our students come from homes with no books and need to be enticed to read.

My Project

My library is a place of reading and learning. I love being able to offer a variety of activities while my students are in the library. One activity that I would love to offer to our students is puzzles. Puzzles are wonderful for spatial reasoning, team work, and logical thinking. Puzzles are also great across all grade levels. I would love to be able to offer a large collection of puzzles for my students to work on throughout the school year. I hope to be able to teach them many skills through the use of these puzzles and I hope they are able to have some fun along the way.
