Reading Our Way to Success!

My students need lots of fiction and nonfiction books to read! These include a Career Book Set, "I Can Read" books, Curious George, National Geographic Readers and more.

My Students

Every Friday, my students can't wait to visit the library and check out a new book. Unfortunately, this is the only time they have access to shelves of books as our classroom has a limited supply of reading material. Please help us grow our class library and with it, my students' love of reading!

My class is an active bunch of kindergarteners, each with their own unique personalities and needs.

Many come from low income families and do not have access to a wide variety of books at home. They are excited to learn, and look forward to visiting the school library each week; Friday can never come quick enough! Imagine their excitement if they could visit our classroom library every day!

My Project

Imagine a classroom where the students are excited to read. Empty shelves are replaced with tubs of books. There are stories of princesses and pirates, non-fiction books about dinosaurs and earthquakes, books of all levels for each child in the class. They become immersed in their books, excited to learn new things and read new stories. Imagine their faces as they read their first book all by themselves, how their eyes light up when they recognize one of our sight words on the pages. With your support, we can transform our classroom into a book rich environment where students continue to grow and learn through reading.

Dr. Seuss wisely said, "The more you read, the more things you will know.

The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." Help my students go places through reading by contributing towards our classroom library!
