Mr. Hale from Lyles TN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Read it & Weep!

My students need books in the classroom to explore new worlds and broaden their horizons. We also would like to have a hanging class garden that my students can take part in cultivating.

My Students

My students are incredible. They come to class each day with a smile on their face and eager to know what will be going on in class. The give their all in everything they do and are amazing collaborators! They are each other's cheerleaders and are constantly encouraging their neighbor in class.

I teach in a small, rural school where the poverty level is high.

Some of my students don't have all the "luxuries" that most kids take for granted. My goal is to engage them in class every way that I can. By my students feeling safe and at home, they can open up and participate, increasing their opportunity to learn.

My Project

These books will be used to inspire my students to nurture a love a reading and allow it to take them to new places and engage in new adventures. The books in my classroom library somewhat hold my students' attention. By adding these titles to my collection, my students will have a variety of novels and series to choose from instead of the handful they have now.

After an interest survey, these titles all intrigued the majority of my students.

Adding these books to my classroom library will help to encourage reading and promote being an avid reader. We will be using these books for book projects and presentations for different grade level standards as well.
