Mrs. Townsend from Neptune Beach FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

They Asked, We Delivered! Books They Want To Read Now!

Help me give my students books they love reading based on a survey our school took. These are the books they want to read more and more of right now.

My Students

We are a Participatory Level Academics (PLA) classroom in Florida. Our students are functioning on the lowest cognitive level and their disability is often accompanied by physical limitations and delayed development. We use the MOVE (Movement Opportunities via Education/Experience) curriculum. It focuses on sitting, standing and walking. Many of our students have come in completely immobile and after a few years, they are ambulatory.

Even small gains are so exciting that we celebrate big time!

We work on independent functioning skills all day long. Many students learn to feed themselves, potty on the toilet and access the school setting in age-appropriate ways.

My Project

We are giving our library an extreme makeover. Our students and families have been raising money to help make the changes even more dramatic and user-friendly. We're planning to paint, put in fresh carpet, add flexible seating areas, and of course, add new books. Many of our books are as old as our students' grandparents!

When we asked what books would make them run to the new library, and they gave us a LONG LIST.

Surfing, Fishing, Wings of Fire, etc. The list was long and we've tried our best.

This project will make those hopes and dreams come true, with some surprises they didn't even know to ask for. Help us give them the best new library possible.
