Ms. Gonsales from Richmond CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

We Can't Wait to Read!! Fun With Literature Is Inspiring.

Help me give my students a variety of enriched literature at their level. A classroom library filled with new books to choose from will catch their attention and perform on-task.

My Students

My students are energetic first graders and eager to learn. They are very focused on reading. These little humans are ready to learn about diversity and culture,

Engagement in our morning circle conversations about empathy and respect for learning throughout the curriculum, will target our classroom library to deepen conversation.

As we enter our safe zone of the classroom every day, my students show enthusiasm and a positive outlook in the classroom to make it an easy glide through the first grade!

My Project

New books will give my students multiple choices to read at their level. It will get them to have a deeper thinking in comprehension and to perform as a fluent reader.

With rich literature to chose from, it will give more opportunity to concentrate and believe in their writing about various literature.

A new library will keep them interested, focused and will give them a deeper thinking about books and the importance of phonics. Phonics comprehension and fluency keep them at a significant respect for reading and learning. Rich conversations about different types of readings will be very beneficial to their performance levels.
