Mrs. Jones from Nicholasville KY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Because of Winn(ing) Books

My students need books that they love to read! They are SO interested in Because of Winn-Dixie, so I know they will love all of the Kate DiCamillo selections for our library.

My Students

My school is still a very new school, so resources can be hard to find. We work to use the materials we have in an efficient way. Each day, my students enter the classroom "ready to learn."

My 28 curious 3rd graders love to explore the world through books!

They are always excited to share a new favorite book with me. My school is a Title I school, and students come from very different neighborhoods. However, each of them are enthusiastic about growing and becoming great people. In my classroom, we work on life skills along with our academic education. I want to help mold them into people who are kind, considerate, and thoughtful.

My Project

I am so excited to put a collection of books by Kate DiCamillo as well as The Magic Tree House books on my shelves. The kids love to choose these types of books for their independent reading. My students have 30 minutes each day to read a book of their choosing. When they start on a series of books like the ones I have chosen, they don't want to stop reading!

When students read independently, they build comprehension and fluency.Having current favorites in my classroom library will motivate students to read!

They get so excited over new books, so I know they will love these new additions.
