Mrs. Buchanan from Guntersville AL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chapter Books for Third Grade Students!

My students need a set of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid chapter books.

  • $165 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Third-grade students love to learn, and I love providing them with as many resources as I possibly can through DonorsChoose to enhance their education at our school. I teach two classes of third-grade students. I teach language arts and social studies to my first block, and I teach math and science to my second block. There are forty diverse students total in my classes. Many of these students receive free or reduced-price lunches. I have been teaching for sixteen years. This is my third year to teach third grade.

My Project

Next school year, I will teach two classes of third-grade students. My students will learn about Language Arts and Social Studies in my class. My students will be reading a lot so I need more classroom chapter books for my students to enjoy. Many of my past students loved to read the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series so my project is requesting a complete set of these humorous chapter books. These books are above a third-grade level so they will challenge my third-grade students as well. Thank you in advance for considering my project for funding!
