My Students

My students are very special kiddos who are excited to learn! They enjoy reading and learning through their reading every day!

These students are smart, energetic, and enthusiastic; they always come to school with new knowledge to share about something that they have just learned or read about!

Each day in the classroom provides a chance for students to learn something new. My students come ready to learn and face every single day like they will own it. It is such a joy knowing that I get to come to school and see their smiling faces every day!

My Project

I am a new teacher who is wanting to take my classroom library from “zero to hero!” I have found so many neat and interesting books that I would love to add to our classroom library. There are so many wonderful selections out there that I want to share with my students in order to expand their reading horizons!

Your donations will do so much to help take our classroom library from “zero to hero” and give my second graders some fabulous new books to read!

In addition to our new books, I would like to purchase some new bookshelves and bins to display the books in. I would also like to purchase some library cards and pockets to put inside of the books to help with organization and keeping track of the books.

I know my students will enjoy the new additions to our classroom library, and I am so excited for them to get to read some new books!

Thanks for checking out my project.
