Ms. Smith from Bridgeville DE is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

My students are very diverse, coming from different socioeconomic statuses, countries, and backgrounds. This pandemic is hitting them hard, much like everyone else. Many are struggling with at home learning and many lack basic materials, such as books and crayons.

My students love borrowing books from my classroom library.

I want to bring a piece of the library to them, along with a fun hobby to occupy their time at home!

My Project

The books that I have chosen will help my students continue to build their love of reading, even though they aren't in the classroom.

Many of my students lack basic educational supplies at home.

During this pandemic and current state of the world, I would love to be able to provide my students with some supplies to keep them occupied while at home. Most of the students that I have do not have internet access at home, so I want to give them coloring books and colored pencils to give them something to do at home. I also want to give them not just one, but four interesting adventurous books to keep them reading!
