Ms. Wright from Davenport FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Shooting for Sunshine State Reader Status!

My Students

My classroom is in a growing school that's nestled amongst the groves. Everyday I strive to make my classroom a welcoming place to be so that my students come to class with a great attitude and willingness to learn. We are active learners with a passion for acquiring new knowledge and skills.

My students are like energizer bunnies!

They just keep going despite any challenge that they may be faced with. Perseverance and determination are two major qualities that they possess that allow them to be successful. As a teacher it is my job to continue to encourage them and foster these behaviors as the year progresses.

My Project

The resources that I am requesting are the 16 books chosen for the 2015-2016 Sunshine State Young Readers Award. They have been selected by the Florida Association for Media in Education because of their wide appeal, literary value, varied genres, curriculum connections and multicultural representation.

These books will continue to foster the love of reading that my students already possess.

As my students are getting older, it is critical that they still have that innate desire to get lost in the plot of a well-told story.
