Ms. Bainbridge from Columbia MD is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Great Graphic Novels for Ravenous Readers

Help me give my students engaging graphic novels for independent reading! After moving to fourth grade and acquiring books from other teachers, I am still in need of graphic novels for my students.

My Students

The more experience I have as a teacher, the more I realize how wonderfully unique my students truly are. They are diverse in so many ways, from socioeconomic status, ethnicity and race to native language and family make-up, but they are similar in that they come to school with a desire to learn.

Not every child comes to school ready to learn and to be challenged, but part of my job as a teacher is to instill a passion for learning and develop their innate sense of curiosity to ensure they will be lifelong learners.

My Project

My students have a wide variety of interests in reading. Some of them are really interested in Science Fiction, others are really interested in Realistic Fiction. I am grateful to have had many books donated to my new classroom library, but one genre I am missing is Graphic Novels.

After borrowing some graphic novels from the library, I was able to see how engaged in reading my students really get when they are given texts they want to read.

This is the reason I am asking for graphic novels for our classroom library for my students to read. I want to ensure each student has books they want to read in our classroom.
