Mrs. Laken from Bogue Chitto MS is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

4th Grade Book Bonanza!!

Help me give my students more of a variety in my classroom library. I have had the same kiddos for two years now. They love to read and have devoured almost everything on my shelves!

My Students

My students are bright, creative, VERY energetic 4th graders! They come to my class everyday ready to dig down into our newest science or social studies lesson! They are also HUGE readers! They really enjoy reading and taking AR tests.

They have devoured most of the chapter books in my room, and are desperately looking for something new to get their hands on!

I have collected many sets that my girls love but I am looking to add some diversity for my fellas!

These kids are super smart, kind and OH so accepting and loving. I can honestly say I have never taught a class quite like this one. I learn from them everyday. They build each other up, work together, and encourage one another every single day. I love getting to come to school each day and spend my time with them.

My Project

Although I primarily teach Science and Social Studies I try to promote reading as much as possible.

These books will provide more of a variety in my classroom and will also provide my students with access to newer, more interesting Accelerated Reading books.

My kiddos LOVE to read and take AR tests and I am quickly running out of unread books on my shelf for my kids!

Help us out by donating and providing my kids with new exciting adventures that will appeal to kids with ALL kinds of interests. I tried to get plenty of books for my fellas as I am already heavy on books for my girls!
