Ms. Terpstra from Hudsonville MI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Wanted: Books, Books, and More Books!

My students need more books for our classroom library to help them find the charters and series they will fall in love with. Please help me make this reading dream come true!

My Students

I have Twenty-four second graders walk into my classroom every morning. Some came in with a love of reading. While others came in searching for a book or character to fall in love with. And, some do not care for reading at all.

I want to help all of my students develop a deeper love of reading and find the books that make them use their imagination, wonder, and crave more.

I enjoy introducing them to new worlds to get lost in and charters to grow with.

My Project

My goal is to foster the love of reading to all 24 of the children in my classroom. Children who read books of their choice and for pleasure grow significantly as readers. My students have read most of the books in our classroom library and are constantly recommending new books for me to purchase.

I want to be able to provide books for each of my 24 students to fall in love with.

I need to provide different series and books at different levels to meet the needs of all of my students. Please help me fill my classroom with so many books my students will never say they don't have a book to read!
