Mr. Renteria from Amarillo TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Replenish Classroom Library

Help me give my students new leveled books for our class library. These classroom libraries take a beating and are always in need of new titles and fresh pages.

My Students

My students are survivors! They literally come from all around the world. We are a Title I school which means we are located in a low-income neighborhood with many refugees and ELL students. We are part of the "No Excuse" program. This program is school-wide and helps promote the idea that there is no excuse as to why you cannot go to college. When someone says "they can't", the other students quickly shut them down by saying "you can". My class motto is "yes I can and I will".

With 24 languages spoken at our school, we strive to differentiate instruction to reach all students that need help with the new language.

As I start each year I know that the reading levels improve every year. Last year I had two students reading at a third grade level and most likely higher.

These students are pushing to reach higher expectations we set for them every year. My classroom is all about reading and pushing each other to reach higher and we celebrate success at all levels.

My Project

Meeting students where they are is so important when it comes to reading. Everyday they book shop and discover new titles an show interest in reading with so many choices.

As the year progresses and their reading levels improve, it is important to have choices that peak their interests making them want to improve their reading skills.

I have tried to look for books wherever I can to help the classroom library.

When students see their own progress and develop a sense of ownership in their reading, they start to go through the books faster and faster. This leave me with tattered books that need to be replaced.
