Mrs. MCCONNELL from Compton CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Does Anyone Want Some Fudge?

My students need 36 copies of both "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" and "Fudge-a-Mania"

Here come the Knights! My class is composed of 36 wonderful fourth graders in California.

I want to bring back the love for independent reading to my students. Many have lost the zeal for reading simply because they do not have books to take home to read. Sadly, I do not have class sets of reading books for each student to take home. My students need individual copies of fun reading books for use in class and to take home to read.

With Judy Blume's stories of Peter and his brother Fudge, my students will get hooked and want to keep reading. They will be able to relate to Peter and Fudge and draw connections to their own lives.

Your generous help will make it possible for each individual student to have a copy of Judy Blume's books to read in class and take home for hours of enjoyment.
