Mrs. Schelling from Plantsville CT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Stellar Readers Need Stellar Books!

Help me give my students books that they need to be successful during their new weather reading unit and books that they desire to read during their independent choice reading time!

My Students

This is a group of fourth grade students who are so excited to learn and come to school every day. They deserve the absolute best every day and are so thankful for all that they receive. These students need the tools to help them excel!

It is incredibly difficult to provide absolutely everything for my students and every donation will make a difference for this wonderful group of boys and girls.

It is my goal to make sure that these students have the best learning experience and materials as possible.

My Project

The students in my class love to read! We are beginning a new unit on weather and we do not have the books that we need to be successful. I was able to gather as many as I could but it would be a great help to have more. They need to work on non-fiction strategies and these books have all the tools they need to do so.

Students will use these new weather books to learn about natural disasters in weather and use their non-fiction reading skills to compare and contrast texts.

The more books we have, the more the students will be during this unit. Please help us!
