Ms. S. from Hempstead NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading is What We Like !! We Need More Books in Our Library

My students need a wide variety of reading materials. We don't have books in our library that are on their grade level where they can read for enjoyment.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Through read-alouds my grade 3 students learn many skills such as inferring and main idea and our class library does not have picture books where they can listen from and learn a skill through.

Our school is situated in a low socioeconomic community and we lack the appropriate books to support them in reading and allowing them to excel in this area where they demonstrate so much difficulty in!!

Our students are primarily from central american countries whose parents are unable to support them in their reading due to the lack of the English language.

My Project

Through your gift my students will be able to make connections through stories read aloud to learn a wide variety of skills as well as be able to make connections with themselves through a story. My students will be able to make a close connection with the stories to their own personal experiences or lives which will make them more engaging in learning and primarily reading stories!

Your gift to our class will ensure that my students have access to books of different authors and genres where they will be able to learn from.

You will offer them a wide variety of texts they will learn from and become exposed to many different types of reading!
