When You Can Read It and See It You Can Learn It!

My students need a variety of 60+ books to increase their ability to use and understand language.

My Students

What was your favorite book as a child? I know I can remember how excited I would be picking up a brand new book and the anticipation of new stories I would discover inside. I want to give that gift to my students.

I serve students between the ages of 3 and 14, so that is a wide variety of books I need to stock in my classroom.

I work in a high-poverty school district, and a lot of the kids don't have access to high quality books at home. My favorite days are when a student looks at my bookshelf and asks to take a book home because they want to read it on their own. Most of the books in my room have come from the thrift store or are books I had as a child, and while some are still good, others are hopelessly out of date. I would love to provide these kids relevant and exciting stories to learn from!

My Project

I've asked for a wide variety of books for children from preschool up to 8th grade. The books span non-fiction to fiction, biographies, science, fantasy, preschool concepts, and so much more. These books will open up students to a wide variety of new ideas and make their time in speech therapy that much more enjoyable and interesting.

Thank you for your consideration.

These books will be used for years and years and reach hundreds of students. I can't wait to see their reaction when we get to go through an entire box of new books. Thank you for giving the gift of reading to so many!
