Books, Books, Books! Give the Gift of Reading!

My students need high interest, current books, such as Hunger Games, Twilight and Pendragon, in addition to books that reflect the diversity of the students!

My Students

"Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him." --Maya Angelou You can be the one to bring that love of reading to a class of 7th grade students!

My students attend a STEM school focused on Math, Science, and Technology.

Our goal is to make sure that 100% of our students are accepted to college at the end of high school. Our school faces huge challenges in meeting that goal, but we KNOW it can happen! About 70% of our students are living in poverty, and many would be the first in their families to attend college. About half of our students start 6th grade without grade-level reading skills. With your help, I aim to change that!

My Project

Although I have been shopping, out of my own pocket, at every thrift store in the city, I simply cannot find all of the books I need there. I need current, high-interest reading material that will inspire reluctant readers to pick up a book! With your help, my students will have popular series like Hunger Games, Twilight, and Pendragon, as well as book featuring diverse characters. Research says that a child can grow more than 2 years worth as a reader in ONE school year when they are reading text constantly, which is why our need for books is so urgent.

Please help me furnish a classroom library that will inspire children to love reading.

In order to be college-ready, my students MUST be reading at or above grade level by the time they enter high school. With your help, we can get them there!
