Mrs. S. from North Little Rock AR is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading helps build CHARACTER!

My students need to have exposure to these books. The books are important because of the content in which they teach. They are teaching students how to be kind to other students and not to bully.

My Students

The school where I am the literacy coach is ninety-nine percent free or reduced price lunch. These students have so much going on in their lives outside of school, they need some positive character education.

"Character is doing the right thing when nobody is looking."

Exposing students to ways to be a good citizen will not only help them in school, but also help them everyday in the real world. These students have so much potential they just need and can make a difference in the lives of others.

My Project

The books that I am wanting to get through this project promote being a good character. These books teach different ways to be a good friend and how bullying is not the right answer.

Reading helps build CHARACTER by showing how different characters in the story handle problems.

Whether it is a problem with a bully or a problem they have themselves not being a good friend to other people. These books provide examples of ways to cope with people who are demonstrating good character qualities. By having these books in ALL the classrooms, the teachers can reinforce the good character qualities as needed.
