Class Set for Writing Club

My students need a class set of "Freak the Mighty" and 2 copies of the "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" set.

My Students

For our writing club, we are going to read 'Freak the Mighty.' We need a class set! The best way to improve our writing is through reading, and my students need access to books to be able to propel their skills!

My students are very eager to improve their literacy skills after two hard quarters of working to understand that reading is fun.

Unfortunately, access to classroom copies of novels for each student are rare. That is why we are asking for 'Freak the Mighty.' We are also very excited about the Percy Jackson series and would LOVE two copies of the complete series for our library! Thank you!
