Mr. Rounds from Portland ME is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Fantasy Library for Genuine Club Conversations

My students need a multiple copy library of fantasy books to drive their fantasy book club unit. Having multiple copies of these titles means students can have meaningful, genuine conversation about their reading.

My Students

Imagine a room full of independent and inquisitive fifth graders all working toward their own learning goals. My room is a think tank filled with the leaders of tomorrow. My fifth graders are unique and their learning is important to the global future.

Our school is located in one of the most vibrant cities in the Northeast!

It is home to a diverse base of families and a spectrum of socioeconomic backgrounds. Every classroom mirrors the diversity in our beautiful city.

Many of our students receive free or reduced cost lunch, while many others do not. This is what makes our grade level and school a rich and vibrant community much like Portland. These students deserve a vibrant and diversified learning experience that highlights this.

My Project

Harry Potter. The Pevensies. Dorothy. Percy Jackson. Milo & Tock. Meg & Charles Wallace. These fantasy characters are in search of fifth graders to bring their adventures to life through genuine and amazing conversations. These magical stories are perfect for fifth graders to dig deeper into the themes of fantasy work.

Quests, villains, magic, and heroes abound as fifth graders learn about the elements of fantasy.

Having multiple copies of each title means students can read and discuss in book clubs as they discover the magic of fantasy. This allows students to learn, not only from their own reading experiences, but from others as well.
