Mrs. Payne from Venice CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ready to Read!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My class can't get enough to read! They love chapter book series and we would love to add to our library.

Positive, energetic, and enthusiastic!

My students are bright and curious learners inside and outside of the classroom. The children have grown up together in a small and diverse beach community and their voracious appetite for reading needs to be satisfied.

My Project

I want to help nurture my students' love for reading and I need your help. My students enjoy reading chapter series with many different genres and really have devoured our classroom library. We use these books for reading partnerships and larger book clubs.

With so many cuts to the education budget our children are the unfortunate ones who suffer.

Please help support my students' love for reading and fund our classroom's library. We are ready to get started on a new reading adventure!
