Mrs. Willis from Garland TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Always Leave Them Hanging!

My students need the opportunity to experience the continuation of this classic book series! We did a book study on the first book and they are very excited about the possibility of finding out what happens next!

My Students

Our library is the hub for many activities in our school. Our students jump at the chance to come, not only to find their next adventure in a book, but also to be in a place where they feel safe and wanted.

We may be a smaller public school then most, but our student have the same needs and desires as any other school in our district!

My students are thirsty for new experiences and I hope to be able to provide these for them even in the library!

My Project

Our students had the opportunity to be exposed to the original Wrinkle in Time book. At the end of every chapter we studied, they begged to read 'just one more chapter today!' They loved diving into the descriptive language and connecting their own real world situations to what they characters were experiencing.

Everyday, the students were excited to open their personal book up and experience the adventure along with Meg, Calvin and Charles Wallace.

My hope is to allow them the chance to continue their newfound relationship with these characters they know and love. This class set will allow each student their own copy to enjoy.
