My Students

Can you remember being excited about brand new books as a young reader? Do you know the feeling of enjoying great novels and talking about it with friends?

My fifth graders are just like you!

These kiddos love to enjoy books together, especially mysteries that they can solve as a team and talk about!

My Project

My fabulous fifth graders are at home with their families now, learning from home like their peers across the world. They are working hard to help their parents with chores and younger siblings, as well as completing classwork for their teachers. Help me make a delivery as the Book Fairy to brighten their days!

Let's help them keep up with reading skills and practice vocabulary and writing in fun, engaging ways with Choose Your Own Adventure books and some puzzles, crosswords, and word games galore!

These packages of literacy fun will be delivered to their homes from a socially safe distance by Mrs. O the Book Fairy!
