Mrs. Franke from Mecca CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Team Franke

My Students

These children live in an agricultural area, where many

are children of migrant workers, who work very hard to support their family.

They are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically.

These kids need lots of support to encourage them. They love to read but have no books at home. We could really use paperback books for these children to take home and start their own libraries.

My Project

I am requesting books for my students. Our titles include Because of Winn-Dixie, The BFG, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, One Crazy Summer and more. These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy - I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently!

Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read.

All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind - I have watched them the past few weeks of school read titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.

With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level.
