Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Project

I would love to have some fun and engaging chapter and novel books for my students to read during their independent reading time in our class. My students love adventure books and they also love science fiction books. I would love to have a variety of different genres for my students to be able to select what they like to read during our reading time.

Please help give my amazing students some reading books, so they can have different genre books during their independent reading time during class.

Thank you.

Ms. Johansen
Grades 3-5
