Harry Potter Book Club - Making Reading Magicial

My students need 30 copies of "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," Chocolate Frog Molds for activities and some Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans for the experience!

My Students

Our book club is new this year and we meet twice a week. On one day, we discuss the book. On the second day, we do activities related to the book. So far, we have made wands, performed a sorting ceremony, created potions and studied magical creatures. Your help will take us into the next semester.

Our students are in 6th to 8th grade.

They live in a high poverty area. Many of them are first generation Americans and have parents that only speak Spanish. Very few of our students have computers or Internet at home. A quarter of our students are special needs. They are excited about reading and doing our fun activities.

My Project

We will be using the Goblet of Fire as our book for the second semester. We will read about Harry's adventure in the Tri-Wizard Tournament. The Bertie Bott's Beans will be used in an activity where students will pair up and guess which flavor each bean is. The molds will be used to make Chocolate Frogs in one of our afternoon activities.

Our students are not able to afford these books on their own.

With your donation, we will be able to give these books to our students to read, keep and share with their families. Our aim is to make reading interesting, make it a habit, and to help our students grow!
