Ms. Stanford from Waco TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

READ Like a CHAMP!

My students need books to help them fall in love with reading, Scholastic Scope magazines to be able to read high-interest nonfiction articles, and a comfy chair to read in.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our students live in a high poverty area in Central Texas. Despite this, they are smart and loving. We see them work hard each day, and we want them to be successful learners and thinkers, almost as much as they do themselves!

They deserve to learn in ways that are beneficial to them and their growth.

Please help me to help them learn and grow. I promise you won't regret it! My students surely will not forget how you took a moment to let them know that they are important too. Your donation, no matter how great or small, will reach multiple children for years to come.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind. I have watched previous students read titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.

With these new books, magazines, and comfy chair, my students will be able to choose from a variety of reading material that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level, while being in a comfortable seat.

They will also be able to choose books or magazines that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. My students deserve to read many types of text, and these materials will give them that opportunity!
