S'more Books Would Make for Some Happy Campers!

My students need 8 book sets to build an early reader library in their newly added classroom.

My Students

Fill my new students with imagination! My students are happy and curious in their new first grade class, but it doesn't quite feel like home until they have books of their own to cozy up with and explore the world.

My students are marine biologists, nurses, and teachers every time they close their eyes to dream or open their eyes to read.

These children are seeking magic. My students attend a public school where they believe they are going to MAKE HISTORY and do something awesome for the world! They are eager to learn, succeed, and explore. Each with their own personality, they believe in building each other up, giving a round of applause for a successful test, and offering encouraging words to those struggling. My students surprise me every day, and I have never been so proud to be a teacher!

My Project

Students gasp as the big, bad wolf draws near. They roar in laughter as the little old lady swallows a horse. Their world expands. Their imagination develops and the ability to escape into a new world is given to them. All of this is possible because of a story. Students will find out what they love to read. They will unite to act out their favorite stories of all for younger classes, thereby becoming the teachers themselves. They will realize the importance of reading goes beyond the classroom. Reading is not homework, but a way to experience real adventure. My students will learn all the components of a quality story by using books that keep their interest. They will learn the most important skills of their lives and they will do it with excitement! My students need 8 book sets to build an early reader library in their newly added classroom.

My students were in an overcrowded situation.

Another first grade teacher was needed to ensure the optimal learning experience for the students. I am thrilled to be creating a new classroom and joining my team. However, I need the resources to make First Grade as exciting for them as they deserve. Please help me show my students the magic of reading!
