We Like Big Books & We Cannot Lie!

My students need new big books for shared reading and literacy centers

My Students

As a teacher at a small school in a rural community with majority of my students coming from low-income families, many of my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom.

Despite their challenges, my students enter our classroom each day with a positive energy and the willingness to learn.

These students are full of life and have tons of personality. They make teaching so much fun. We have quickly bonded together and have become like family!

My Project

Reading is a huge part of our day. The big books center is easily one of the most popular center choices in our classroom. Students look forward to reading from the big books with their friends. We also use big books for our shared reading time. Students love to practice reading with expression and sounding like "cool readers".

By donating to our project, students will have access to new big books for our classroom.

These big books offer students a fun way to practice reading fluently. You will be helping instill a love of books and passion for reading in my students.
