Once Upon an Insatiable Class of Readers: We Need Books! Most of my kids come from immigrant families with hardworking families who are doing their best to provide the best for their kids. With many coming from an impoverished background, some students are raised by their extended family because their parents need to work many, often late, hours to support the household. Thus, families often turn to the school and classrooms to provide eye-opening experiences and to help their children grow socially and emotionally, as well as academically. $199 needed>>

Get Lost in a Good Book My students' experience of a library is a graffiti filled, poorly-lit room where the books are disorganized and there is a long waiting list.

Exploring The World Through Reading! Most of my students are struggling readers and many of them don't have access to books. My students like to read interesting books that will help them learn about the world. They need to read informational text that will help them become strong readers. $830 needed>>
