I am a 3rd grade teacher in a small school in a low-income neighborhood in San Francisco's Mission district. We are committed to improving the literacy of our students. Here at Marshall School, teachers are using a variety of strategies to help students improve their fluency, comprehension, and enjoyment of reading. My students are motivated to read by the ""Adventures of Captain Underpants series and other favorites. This year, I am teaching a new grade and the same students as I did last year, so I need more books. Several months into a typical school year, my students have read my entire book selection. I have approximately fifty engaging chapter books at different levels in our classroom available for students to read in class or borrow to read at home. However, since I am switching grades, and I am teaching the same students, I need new books sooner than I normally do. They are avid readers, and unfortunately, our school library is insufficient. For the coming school year, I would like to purchase one hundred new books at different levels that will offer my students new challenges and opportunities to engage in books, both in the classroom and at home.
