Ms. Wendolek from Ft Washington MD is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Science for my Class

My students need non fiction books to read for science. They can also use these for gathering information for a project we will be doing on planets.

My Students

My students are looking forward to some books on the solar system. They are looking forward to getting Time for Kids Magazines. They love science. I love teaching it.

My students are a diverse group of students.

Some of my students are English Language Learners (ELL'S) at our school. They are excited to please. The more that they are exposed to literature the better they will get at reading. The more diverse my library is the better it is for my students.

My Project

The items I am requesting are going to help provide more nonfiction books for the students to read. Also they will provide a science center for my students to look up information for different projects we have planned for the year. The Time for Kids Magazines will help the students stay up to date on different things going on in the world. I will be able to send this home with the students to give them something to read over again at home.

This will help my classroom become more diverse in the reading department.

It is very important to have a lot of different reading material for my students. My students will be able to see what is happening now in science. They will be able to take it home to read as they want to. Maybe even show mom and dad and get them involved in what they are learning in class.
