Ms. A from Bossier City LA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Finding the Magic Through Book Series

My students need books they can truly linger with, imagine, and create worlds inside their minds. We need to build our library with book sets such as A to Z Mysteries and Captain Underpants.

My Students

Each day, I have the opportunity to work with an outstanding group of third-grade students. Third graders' zest and eagerness to learn something new never ceases to amaze me. Students arrive every morning full of smiles, excitement, and energy eager to start a new day of learning.

My third graders come to me with a wide array of academic ability, background knowledge, and experiences that make each child unique.

Our school serves many military students and my students spend this year learning the foundation and love of reading. My students are very excited about chapter books and have a strong love for reading. They are very bright, ready to learn and a lot of fun to teach.

My Project

My students have been off to the races with reading since the beginning of the school year and now it is time to sink our teeth into some books with sequels. We have gained enough confidence to tackle chapter books and now we need the inventory and opportunity to really see characters develop over time.

A great book character will stay with you for a lifetime and I want that for my budding little minds.

Through chapter book series, students will be able to trade, discuss, and fully immerse themselves into fantastical worlds. I want them to be critics and lovers of books and the only way to do that is to get them hooked with excellent box sets.
