My Students

Our school is a Title One School. We are located in a suburban area and our school is very diverse. We have students represented from many different countries. Our school is very family oriented. We have many students who are related to each other and know each other well outside of school.

Our students love to read, but often do not have an abundance of books on their reading level.

Students like to read graphic novels, sports books, fairy tales, informational texts, and fantasy books.

My Project

We read lots of books in Book Club. However, we are not allowed to take the books home that we read because they are part of a set of six books. We want students to be able to take books home so we are asking for specific titles that will peak student's interest such as Lunch Lady, Bone, and Baby Mouse. The students are so eager to read these books in the comfort of their homes, returning them when they have finished for the next reader to enjoy.

We would be so grateful if you could help with our class library so that we could practice our reading at home.

We want books, books, books!
