Ms. F. from Las Vegas NV is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Real-World Delights

My students need 20 Weekly Readers and 20 Time Magazines to develop their independent reading levels and feed their eagerness to learn about the world.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Don't you remember coming home from school when you were a kid... being so excited about that something in your backpack that your teacher gave you... Some things never change, I couldn't wait to get home and curl up with the magazines and books my teachers ordered for us. That's why I chose the teaching profession. I'm crazy about reading! I teach first grade at an elementary school in Nevada. My students attend school in a high-needs community.

My students face some obstacles, but they are hard workers and they do their best every day. It is difficult to find the resources for them to buy independent reading materials to read at home. Every first grader shows up for school expecting to learn how to read fluently. I can't let them down.

Child-friendly magazines are the key to unlocking their motivation to read independently. Weekly Readers and Time Magazines create lifelong learners and sincere interests. They stimulate the best discussions I have ever heard.

You will make it possible for my students to be happy to come to school each week. You will help create an educated citizenry. Your help will make a tremendous difference to us!
