Mrs. Bentley from Cleveland GA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Read All About It!!

My students need more exposure to a wider range of reading materials to further develop their love of reading and to further develop their reading abilities. These books will provide them with those opportunities.

My Students

All smiles.....that's how I describe the 2nd graders that I see come through the door each morning. We are in a city school in a small county with students from various socioeconomic backgrounds. They truly are a special group of kiddos who are SO eager to learn! They give me their all each and every day.

"You make my heart smile." This was a quote from one of my students once the student learned to read this year.

This is why I teach.

My Project

Imagine sitting down to read a book that is too hard time and again. This happens to some of my students all too often. This book set will open a whole new world for many of the underprivileged students in my class. Many of them are behind in reading but are slowly catching up. This will assist them in reaching their reading goals.

Having these books will spark a love of reading for my aspiring readers!

Seeing their little faces light up when discovering they can actually read a book makes what I do worth every minute. It is my hope, that with this set of readers, all of my students will find their love of reading!
