Mrs. Salazar from Santa Fe NM is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading Poems

My students need basic materials like markers for their daily learning. Books are essential for their literacy development. Also they need material for organization and small rewards to keep motivated.

My Students

I teach at a Title I school in Santa Fe, NM where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students have very limited schooling in their first and second language as well.

We work together in all subjects, literate is one of the subjects they need more support, even in their own language. They have a lot of dreams but they and their families, need the tools to make them successful. They like to move and talk to each other, they love to listening somebody else to read, but need motivation when they have to read by them selves.

My Project

My students have been having difficulties in reading poems. One reason is that they are not sufficiently exposed to this type of literature. This school year I am organizing different tools to help them in this area.

One of these tools I am planing to include are more poetry books in our classroom library.

I am also planning to include different materials that help organize our environment and my students personal materials. Each material will be used in such a way that my students stay motivated in their daily learning. This will be possible only with you generosity contribution.

Thank you in advance for helping our students' education!
