*FUNDED* VPL Liked this Initiative: "Wonderfully Fun Books for First-Graders!"

Mrs. Britton is a first grade teacher in Wisconsin with lower income, inter city students. She asks, "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." In order for her to start her library, we have given a seed fund to kick start her campaign.
Mrs. Britton wrote us a note: 

"Thank you so much for you donation, and for the kind words! Words like that really inspire me, and the words you said, are what I believe in so strongly! I am so excited about getting these new books for our classroom, and I can't wait to see just how far I can get my little students. I like to tell them, "Dream Big!""

 

We just heard from Mrs. Britton with great news:

"Dear VPL vplstore.com,

Thank you so much for funding our "Wonderfully Fun Books for First-Graders!" on Donorschoose.org. I am so excited about getting all of these wonderful new books for our classroom. All of these books were carefully chosen to match my students' reading abilities, and they will definitely get used over and over again. My students will LOVE them! This is going to have a huge impact on my students' reading ability, because the books chosen based on reading levels and my students goals. Having new, high quality books is so much better than reading from a basal. We really appreciate your support! Thank you so much!

With gratitude,
Mrs. Britton"

They are so lucky to have a teacher like Mrs. Britton. Keep up the great work!
