Mr. Earles from Chicago IL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Wankandian Harry Potter?

My students need novels to read that represent themselves with characters in the story. We send so much time reading Informational text and sometime they need break from reality.

My Students

I teach at a one of the largest fine arts and technology magnet schools in Chicago's north side. Our diverse students come from all over Chicago and nearly ninety percent of our students are low income.

My thirty two fifth graders are full of energy and love to learn!

They amaze me every day with their dedication to school and our classroom community. I strive everyday to make our classroom a welcoming and safe environment that encourages my students to take risks and become better learners and global citizens!

My Project

I need that one good book to hook students this year! "Children of Blood and Bones" is the first installment in a Young Author's West African Fantasy about a girl who must fight against the monarchy to bring magic back to her people" and will surely excite even the most skeptical of readers and I can't wait.

After hearing such great reviews of "Children of Blood and Bones, by Tomi Adeyemi, and reading it myself this summer, I can't think of a better way to get my students more excited to read a novel this year.

Reading this book will allow my students to know that there are Black authors and that Black characters belong in their stories too.
