Mrs. A. from Highlands Ranch CO is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chapter Books are the Best!

My students need 4 each of 6 easy to read chapter books. Mercy Watson, the loveable pig will have my students laughing so hard that they will want to read the whole series.

My Students

Being able to read chapter books is a big deal when you are in first and second grade. I'm sure the Mercy Watson chapter books will hook my new readers.

My students are struggling to learn to read.

I want my students to feel special when they come to Reading Club. Reading Club is for students who need a little extra help learning to read. When I put fun chapter books into my students' book bags all the students in first and second grade will want to come to Reading Club!

My Project

These special books will be read several times during the year. Not only that but they will be used for many years to come. The children in my Reading Club will read the books with me, then in their classroom and finally at home. That's the great thing about books, they can be used over and over!

Reading is a basic building block to being successful in life.

It is so important to learn to read at an early age. Reluctant readers need fun and exciting books to help them feel successful and to motivate them to read more.
