My Students

My students LOVE to read independently! I want to give them the gift of wonderful, high interest books to continue to fuel that love of reading a learning. In just the first week of school, 1/3 of the grade had finished reading a chapter book. At this rate, inventory will be very low come October and I want to make sure we are reading every day!

I am the writing teacher, but we spend the first 20 minutes of our 70 minute class reading independently with some essential oils going.

The kids really love this time and we keep it sacred.

The babies are passionate about human rights and love reading historical fiction as well as non-fiction. We would appreciate any help you can offer in building our classroom library!

My Project

ELEVEN YEAR OLDS WHO LOVE TO READ?! Believe it or not, that's a non-fiction statement in our classroom. We have a passion for escaping in a book, but have read almost every book in our classroom library! So far this year, we have read 14 million words, but we are just getting started.

Your donations will help all 100 of us read one million words this year.

Literacy allows us to learn about history, escape reality, and appreciate new cultures! This wish list was hand selected by the students in 6th grade. Please donate to our classroom library and continue to fuel our love of reading!
