My Students

My students are eager middle school readers at a school in North Philadelphia that are looking for captivating novels to engage them during their Silent Sustained Reading time. They crave new and interesting stories that will make reading a part of their day that they look forward to and welcome with open arms! The books I am looking to purchase are all novels that I have discussed with students and recommended to a few students and would love to provide for them.

My Project

If my project is fully funded, I will get to present these amazing novels as a gift to my classroom library. I will get to share my love of reading with my 6th graders with some of the books that I spent hours devouring as an eleven-year-old myself. The love of reading is a gift that my students can carry with them through life and will make them life-long learners. My students will be able to check-out these novels to read during our Silent Sustained Reading time in which students are able to take a moment out of the day to just silently read with no strings attached (other than pure joy)!
