Mrs. Ripp from Henderson NV is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Love Good Books!

My Students

We are a wonderful little school with an incredible student body. We have students from all walks of life and they all bring valuable experiences and knowledge to our school. Our library services students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade. They are smart and are learning skills needed in today's educational setting.

Our school is listed as a Title I school due to the amount of students on free and reduced lunch.

Many of our students do not have extra money to purchase technology at home. Often times, the school setting is the main source of instruction on how to use technology. As our students get older, technology is relied on more heavily in the middle and high school grades.

Our students are wonderful: Kind, smart, and loving. I love teaching each and every student at our school.

My Project

Having high interest books to read helps motivate students to read more. When a student is excited about reading a book, they will be engaged and on task during the reading period of the day. The reading program our school follows suggests that the classroom teacher has hundreds of books for the students to chose from in the classroom. Each student is allowed to have five books in their book basket for independent reading time.

My students need more books to chose from.

As a former librarian, I know the books the students want to read. I selected titles that are high interest and consistently requested in the library. I want my students reading and I want them excited to read. The best way to motivate students to read is to give them what they want to read!
