Ms. V. from Indianapolis IN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Read All About It!!!

My students need books to further encourage and deepen their love of reading.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Let us read and read some more! WE need more content because we have read all the books that we have.

These 6th grade students are wonderful and are eager learners.

They love being involved in the classroom, but also enjoy their silent reading time. These books will relate to the students and give them something to read outside of the classroom text.

My Project

These books will give the kids relativity as well as a way to keep busy in those down times while others finish up. They are an amazing group with a love to read more about people and things their age. They will love reading about books of prior teenagers and kids who love things that they love.

This project is so important because the students are awesome and they have a genuine love for reading.

They are eager to let their knowledge of books grow and relate to as many positive things that they can.
