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

To Book-finity, and Beyond!

My students need a wider selection of books to choose from in our classroom library as well as an easel to help support learning around the classroom.

My Students

My students come from very diverse backgrounds. They walk into my classroom every day with an excitement to learn and to share their ideas with others.

The students I serve are enrolled in a dual-immersion program.

They receive half of their instructional day in English and half in Mandarin. They are all working at various levels and are striving to be the best version of themselves as they continue to keep up with the demands of the dual-immersion program.

My students have the ability to question the norms and are consistently surprising me with their curiosity and knowledge. As they continue to learn more, their love for reading expands. It's always exciting to begin talking about something and hear, "Oh! I read about something like that in...!" My students love to challenge themselves and I love to watch them grow.

My Project

I am asking for a Grade 2 leveled library, a Magic Tree House sampler and a Nate the Great sampler. This wide selection of books at various reading and interest levels will help support both my struggling and advanced readers. My students will reinforce their love for reading while improving on their fluency and comprehension. For example, by having a wider selection of both fiction and non-fiction books, my students will have a greater choice of reading material within their reading level.

In addition to the benefit of having a wide selection of books, the easel will support student learning during group work as it may be moved around the classroom instead of staying in one spot.

In addition to teacher use, my students will be able to use it for presentations and for group discussions about books they are reading.
