My Students

In order for students to be successful in school, they need teachers who are not only passionate about their job of teaching, but are willing to go above and beyond to make their students’ learning environment feel like a home.

My students are in first grade and attend a public school in Maine.

Some of my students come from a high poverty area where the resources that they need are not always available. My students love to come to school, and my goal is to provide an environment where they feel safe and loved!

My Project

My students have BIG imaginations! They love being introduced to new books and new characters. In our classroom, students are excited to book shop and open their just right books. The smiles that come across students’ faces as they open a new book is priceless. With your donation, my students can continue their passion for reading and spark even more excitement!

My students are in first grade and attend a public school in Sanford, Maine.

Some of my students come from a high poverty area where resources that they need are not always available. They have a passion for reading and writing; having these books will not only allow our classroom library to be filled with some of our favorite books but help us become better writers as well! Having these books in a series in our classroom allows for multiple read alouds that link to the theme that we are working on during literacy.

During our reading workshop time, my students are independently reading for 20 to 30 minutes a day. My students love to read! This project will allow students to have a larger variety of series books to choose from throughout the school year and a safe place to store these books. Having these new books and book boxes will spark excitement, motivation, and the ability to book shop for just right books! 

These books will support further differentiation among reading levels. Having interesting books and new characters to discover and go on adventures with is one of the key factors in helping children become life-long readers.
