Mrs. Nehls from Waterloo IA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need books to read over the summer so they don't regress! An average of 2 MONTHS of reading skills are LOST over the summer.
As a teacher of a low-socioeconomic school my kids face many challenges each and everyday inside the classroom and at home. All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch each day and our school was one of the lowest achieving in recent years, but we are working our way to the top!
My students know that I will be there everyday with a hug and a smile to remind them that they are in a safe place here at school and that we all care about them.
Each one of us loves working with students and strive to provide them with experiences that show them what the world is like, that they may have never had. Our goal is to challenge and engage our students in every activity.
Over the course of a summer break over TWO months of reading skills are lost due to limited access to books in their possession. My students leave first grade proficient at the state benchmark reading level and return as second graders in August below proficiency. I want to ensure they have continued success in their reading abilities by providing them with books at their reading and interest level so they can read over the summer! By supporting this project you will be able to put 12 books in each one of my 24 students hands that they can keep at their homes and read all summer long!
