Mr. Cohan from Los Angeles CA is requesting books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Special Books for Special Kids!

Help me give my students with special needs copies of classic and best-selling books, including graphic organizer sets, to help build literacy. I want to help my students build confidence and fluency when it comes to reading!

My Project

I am writing to you today on behalf of our classroom of students with special needs, who are in need of a well-stocked library. As you may know, books can be a powerful tool for learning and personal growth, and our students are no exception. However, due to limited resources, we currently do not have a classroom library that meets the diverse needs and interests of our students.

We believe that every child should have access to books that reflect their experiences and identities, as well as those that challenge and inspire them.

With your support, we hope to create a library that will provide our students with these opportunities and help them develop a lifelong love of reading.

Your donation will help us purchase books that are accessible to our students with different abilities and reading levels. We will also aim to acquire books that cover a range of topics, including history, science, literature, and the arts. Our hope is that this library will not only serve our current students but also future students who will pass through our classroom.

Your generosity can make a significant difference in the lives of our students, who face various challenges daily. By supporting this project, you will be contributing to their academic success, their personal growth, and their overall well-being. We hope you will join us in our efforts to create a more inclusive and equitable learning environment.

Mr. Cohan
Grades 9-12
