Mrs. Miller from Crisfield MD is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Quality Classroom Library Selections

My students need a variety of good quality novels in order to find something that is on their level and they have an interest in. This will help them develop such a love for reading!

My Students

My students are 10-11 years in age and live on the eastern shore of Maryland. While the eastern shore is great in many ways, there are limited experience opportunities. Most students rarely travel more than 60 miles outside of town. I want my students to be able to dive into a book and feel as if they’re experiencing something they wouldn’t experience elsewhere.

I remember the excitement and enjoyment I used to get out of reading as a child and I want to bring those same feelings to my students.

My Project

This upcoming school year will be my 4th year teaching. My first 3 years I taught 5th grade math, but this upcoming year I will teach 5th grade self-contained (I’ll teach all subjects). As I look forward and begin to think about the upcoming year, I realize my current classroom library is in need of some serious revamping. In the past, my classroom library was hardly touched due to the fact that I only taught math to 3 rotating classes. However, since I will be teaching reading this year as well, I would like to have a high quality selection of books where students have a variety of genres and levels to choose from.

Reading is a highly important skill that makes an impact in all subject areas and in all careers.

Having this variety of books will increase student engagement, motivation, and interest in reading. By providing students with the opportunity to read good, quality books at school, I know they will fall in love with books and develop stamina for reading. All donated money will go toward buying classroom books and novels on many different reading levels to ensure each child has books to choose from. This classroom library will make an enormous impact for many years to come as the next 100+ students that come to my room will be given the opportunity to truly fall in love with reading and become lifelong readers.
