My Students

"You're never alone when you're reading a book." ~Susan Wigg

I have a group of fourth graders.

They are fun, crazy, and love to be at school. I teach in a Title I school where my kiddos are from VERY unstable and low socio-economic homes. Our classroom is the only place they see books and we are in need or more books.

My Project

Our classroom is a safe spot for my kids. The only books the kids get their hands on are in our classroom or school library. We are in NEED of more books. I read a book this summer called "The Book Whisperer" and it opened my eyes. With all of these awesome books the kids can be EXCITED about reading again. They will be able to have books on their level. They will be able to choose from many books. We will use these books first thing in the morning before announcements. We will use them during Daily 5. They will be able to have a check out system and take them home. They will be able to make projects after they have read a book. This will help my kids and make them love reading again.

I'm not sure if any of you grew up in a home where you did not have a book.

NOT ONE SINGLE BOOK! Please help us get these book collections for our classroom. These kids need them and they will always remember having fun books to read.
