Mrs. Sarah from Pembroke NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Cha-Cha Chapter Books!

My students need multi-leveled "big kid" chapter books to fit the needs of ALL students in my class.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are so excited to start on chapter books this year! Our basal readers are old, outdated, and falling apart—and we do not even have enough copies for each child! My mostly Native American 2nd graders come from a very rural, high poverty area of the country and our school does not have many chapter book sets for whole classroom use.

Here's your chance to help inspire these little ones as we strive to add to our chapter book set collection!

They absolutely loved Junie B Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus as well as the Magic Treehouse Dinosaurs Before Dark. We are looking to add several more chapter book sets to expand our school's collection.

My Project

My students have a few classroom chapter book sets but the sets are all on about the same level. We need a wider range of levels so that ALL of the students can enjoy "big kid" chapter books.

I am careful to select books that will appeal to both boys and girls and serve a wide range of reading levels so that all of my students can benefit from this much needed project.

Second grade is the year kids want to move on from story books and are ready to take on longer books. Chapter books provide them with more opportunity to learn critical story elements, improve reading comprehension, build their vocabulary, and start the wonderful exploration of book series.
