Ms. Napohaku from Hawthorne CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

Help my students get their own quiet reading/sitting area to enjoy reading their books.

My students live in a low-income, culturally diverse urban area.

They come from varying families of single parents, two parents, grandparents, and foster parent households. Many are second language learners. However, they ALL come with the love of learning and joy for school.

My Project

My students will use the reading area to cuddle up with their favorite book. They need a quiet solitary area where they can peacefully enjoy reading a book. They will use the book cart to store books and browse for their favorite new story. This will help them to easily find a book to read.

Children need to find a love for reading, in order to do that sometimes they need a quiet place where they can focus on their book.

Your donation will help my students have a special place to find and enjoy their first favorite book.
