Ms. Costa from Winder GA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Need Mo (Willems) Books

My students need books that they will love to read. Munsch and Willems write books that are silly, fun, and just a joy to read. My students adore these authors!

My Students

My second-grade students are a diverse group with one thing in common: a love of learning. They are critical thinkers and love to immerse themselves in meaningful activities and learning experiences. Their curiosity and out-of-the-box thinking makes our classroom and interesting and lively environment.

I teach at a rural Title I school in Georgia where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and 85% receive free or reduced-price lunch.

Many families in our district have difficulties making ends meet, so funding our projects can present a challenge.

Second grade is a year of great growth for students. It is the bridge between early childhood and third grade, where expectations will increase. I strive to make this year one where my students learn to respect each other and work collaboratively while finding the joy in learning. I want to help provide them with all the tools they need to meet their full potential.

My Project

Getting students to love books the way that I do is one of the best parts of being in education. My classroom library needs constant updating to keep my students engaged and foster a love of books.

One thing that really hooks early readers are books with a great sense of humor.

My second graders absolutely adore books by Robert Munsch and Mo Willems. These books are just the right level for beginning readers, and they are timeless reads that never fail to put a smile on a child's face.

I would like to add some more high-interest reading materials to my classroom library. These books would allow us to do author studies, and even serve as mentor texts for writing.
