Bundles of Books for Brainiacs

My students need 30 books including "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and "The Book Thief" to spark their imaginations and get them excited about reading!

My Students

Do you remember what it was like the first time you read a book that you couldn't put down? My students need books that capture their imaginations - books by the likes of Roald Dahl, Judy Blume, and E.B. White that will get them wanting to read more and more!

I teach a wonderful group of 4th and 5th graders in a school with 70 percent free and reduced lunch.

I want to provide these students with the best possible environment in which to learn and grow. A well-curated classroom library is an essential part of the learning environment - I'm so excited to get these kids reading!

My Project

These books, which range from classics by Roald Dahl and Judy Blume, to Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Percy Jackson, and even include some graphic novel collections, are going to really get my students excited to read. Everyday during our Reader's Workshop these books will be a treasure for students.

Students are sure to discover the magic of reading with these wonderful books in our classroom library.

Without exaggeration, one of the books in this collection just may change a life!
