Mrs. Hawk from Irwin PA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Love of Literature!

Help me give my students a love for literature! I am requesting a collection of various pieces of literature to enhance my guided reading groups. These books will provide the students with novels that will capture their interest.

My Students

A classroom full of 23 students who are hard-working, well behaved, and eager to learn is what I am welcomed to every morning when the day begins. I have an amazing group of students who are actively engaged and love to be challenged. The students in my classroom are all unique in their academic levels and interests and respectful of one another and our classroom.

I am constantly amazed every day by the amount of effort and interest my students take in their learning.

I am always looking for ways to engage, encourage, and inspire my students.

My Project

The novels that appear in this project will provide the students with a variety of literature to choose from when working in their guided reading groups. The books that were chosen for this project come from different genres and cover unique situations. This selection of books will allow the students to learn about different time periods in history, explore character traits, take a journey through a different time period, and identify personal conflicts within characters.

The goal of choosing this list of books is to capture the interest of the students and to encourage them to continue on the path of reading for pleasure.
