My Students

I am a first-grade teacher in a wonderful school in Wisconsin. My students are very special, and I just love going to school every day to see the sparkle in their little 5- to 8-year-old eyes. I also get to connect with students of various ages during and after school. I truly have the most special job in the world and treasure every day with my students! We participate in so many fun activities throughout the year, and our hope is to add even more.

My Project

I am requesting oodles of wonderful books for my first-graders! My students love books like Clifford, National Geographic Dolphins, Tigers, and Weird Creatures, The Little Red Caboose and others. These books are at the perfect reading level for my students, and we are getting a ton of them for the price! We will use these for guided reading groups, partner reading, and prizes.

My students will be so excited to receive all of these wonderful books!

There is no better way to motivate students to read than to have wonderful children's favorites on hand. So many of these are classics from my childhood, and the kids still adore them. Thank you for your help with getting these books into our classroom! We can't wait to read them!
