Mrs. Anderson from Renton WA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Battle of the Books Materials

My students need 16 books for a competition later this spring.

  • $176 goal

This project expired on March 26, 2012.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

We are reading a group of books that we will use to compete against other 4th grade students. After we win for our grade level we will compete against other grade levels to represent out school. If we win that competition we will represent our school against other schools around the district.

We are a 4th grade class who loves to read and learn new things.

We also like a friendly competitions amongst other classes in our grade level. We are a close knit group of students who knows how to have a good time. We like to have fun while we are learning lots!

My Project

With helping provide these book for our classroom it will allow some of my students to read literature outside of their comfort zone and just might inspire them to read different books by different authors. With these books it will allow my students to challenge themselves and and will allow some of my students to build their comprehension and reading stamina since others will be relying on them to read these books for their battle of the books competition.

Some of my students want to read the same author and genre all the time.

By competing in this competition it will force my students to read outside of what they are used to. This competition is up to the students and the students alone. I have a lot of my students interested in reading these titles this year. I am excited to see them compete at the school and hopefully district level with your help in donating to my cause. THANK YOU!
