Mrs. Walruff from Lees Summit MO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading at Home

My students need folders to assist to protect books going home from school. The books will add to our selection of books they can take home to read.

My Students

M. Elementary's 1st-grade students are amazing. They are amazing because they love learning and strive for the best. The student's love to move and be active to learn new concepts and skills. In our classroom, we encourage each other to ask questions, challenge each other in respectful ways, and share new thinking. The students come from a variety of backgrounds and with a variety of experiences. They love sharing things they have experienced or witnessed and connect it to their learning.

My Project

Reading at home is very important. The folders will allow the students to transport books to and from school. The students have started to take books home and they are really enjoying sharing the books they read at school with their families. We currently are using gallon size baggies and and they get worn out quickly. The plastic folders will last longer and keep the books safe. The books will be added to our library, so they have a wider selection of reading material. The students will become more confident readers and will be able to select stories of their interest.
