Mr. Calubaquib from San Francisco CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Book Series for Fantasy Book Clubs

My students need fantasy books for their book club groups. Series like Gregor the Overlander are great fantasy stories that draw great discussions from my students.

My Students

My students come from different backgrounds and have unique stories to share. Living in SF, we have families from different cultures, ethnicities, and socioeconomic status, which means different perspectives. However, they do have many things in common as well. The most important being their genuine curiosity about the world we live in. Yet, learning about our world is only the beginning.

One thing I do try to emphasize with my students is to not only learn about the world, but the role we play in shaping it.

I want my students to understand their history. I want to empower them to mold their future for themselves and those less fortunate.

My Project

Our last reading unit is a great way to engage students in fun discussions talking about real life problems through fantasy book clubs. Books students are already interested in get to talk more in depth about characters, themes, and life lessons rather than reading it through and moving on.

Even if available, having to search libraries for the Percy Jackson Lightning Thief Series, Spiderwick Chronicles, the Hunger Games, or Gregor the Overlander which can contain as many as 5 books in a series, for each student is challenging.

This will help us a great deal where I can focus on building lessons and not searching the city's library for copy after copy for the students.

This is such a fun unit for the students and I'd love class sets ready to go so we can dive right in and enjoy these stories.
