Mrs. Meneses from Port St Lucie FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Readers Are Leaders

My students need a new classroom library with books that are interesting that they can read on their own.

My Students

I am moving on down to kindergarten in a different school! Looking forward to a new start and fresh new kiddos excited to learn! For some of them, it will be their first time in school. My kids will be 5 years old coming in to kindergarten, and many will turn 6 before the end of the school year. There will be a range of abilities in my class. Some will not know their letters and sounds and some will know them all.

My Project

These books will make a huge difference in helping my new kindergartners learn how to read and find a love for reading. They will learn that they can read for fun and read for information. There are many classic books in this set that I would love to read to my new kiddos. Many kids will come to me not knowing how to read. I would love for my kids to grow their love of learning and reading by providing them with a new classroom library for the new school year. I can picture them all cuddled up with a stuffed animal and reading one of their new books.
