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

Reading can take their minds places they haven't been to

Help me give my students the resources they need to increase their reading skills. These books will help us increase our library and give my students the opportunity to fall in love with reading.

My Students

My 1st grade class is full of unique personalities. Creative, funny, dramatic, and mysterious, those are words to describe my students. They are also words to describe the stories they love to read! My students explore reading and writing together. I am building life-long readers, lovers of literature, creative thinkers, and effective writers. We are a room of authors, mathematicians, scientists, poets, teachers and learners!

Our school is nestled in the city of Houston, which was once surrounded by hard working families..

Our families often want the best for their scholars but may struggle to find opportunity.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to call them my family.

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-I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. My students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level.

They will also be able to choose books 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.
