My Students

My students are a varied group of kids who work hard and want to always do their best. My room is filled with books and there are books of every genre in my room at every level but somehow, this group has read everything I have in my room.

There is such a great love of books this year in my 3rd grade class that this project will give all my students the greatest variety of books possible to make them be the best readers they can be!

This is their wish list of books they'd like to have in our room.

They have many things they can do during their free time but over half of them would prefer to read, which makes my teacher heart so happy. I would love to be able to supply provide them with everything on this list, especially during this special 5 day matching donation time starting March 2! Please share our project with your friends and families! Thank you, Mrs. Spencer and her 3rd grade Crew!

My Project

My 3rd graders have read WELL over 7, million words and read almost 3 thousand books this year!! They help me build this list and they are so excited to have our project completed by your generous donation to our class.

The amount of books in this Project will more than help them to keep on reading and stay strong readers for life!

Once a child has a solid literacy foundation and finds books that they are interested in, no matter what happens along the rest of their school journey, they will ALWAYS be strong, literate readers! It's something they'll have and be all their lives...readers.
