Mrs. Combs from Fort Wayne IN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Need Books!

Help me give my students new and age appropriate chapter books to read! My students need more challenging books to read in class. They love to read and enjoy popular books.

My Students

My students are bright and eager to learn! So many of my students deal with many adult situations that are out of their control. When they come to school this is a time for them to put all their worries aside and learn the basic skills they will need their entire life.

"The future of the world is in my classroom today."-Ivan Welton Fitzwater

I have 18 students. The 18 boys and girls in my class are just a small portion of the states' largest urban school district with a very limited budget. My students are fun and eager to learn and create! My students are so full of life and ready for their journey into the education world."The only way to do great work, is to love what you do." -Steve Jobs

My Project

My students need new and engaging books to get them excited about reading! My students would be able to connect more with the scenarios in these fun and silly chapter books. I love using chapter books for whole class reads and using them for lessons.

These books would be in the hands of my students every day and I would love to give them something they can look forward to every day!

We would use these books in our classroom library and students would be able to choose these books to read each morning they come to school. Students also read these books at our "Read to Self" station during reading block. Reading is always a choice when they finish a different station as well. My students love to read and it would really make their learning experience more engaging to get new chapter books that would be better fit books for their age.
