Mrs. Alms from Alamo CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Spruce Up Our Classroom Library!

Help me give my students access to new books and new book titles. My A-Z Mystery books are falling apart daily and need to be replaced! And adding some new spy books will enhance our mystery unit!

My Students

I have 22 students who are eager readers. They look forward to that quiet time in our day when we drop everything and read.

My students are thrilled to replenish their book bags each week.

They can't wait to get their hands on a new book. As they read, they love to share their books with their friends. Our classroom library is the heart of our classroom.

My Project

I inherited a classroom library from a teacher who worked at our school for years. While there are many titles, they need updating. I need to supplement our library with books that interest my students.

Students need access to high-interest, quality literature.

I want to motivate my students to read even more by giving them access to new titles and replacing those titles that are falling apart! Not a day goes by that I'm not taping up a poor old paperback that is falling apart at the seams.

A robust classroom library provides access to quality literature for everyone. It ensures that all students have enough books to read at school and at home to develop literacy. There's nothing like seeing a child's eyes light up when they've read a good book!
