Help Us Get Book Sets For Book Club!

My students need 16 sets of books to read during book club.

My Students

Do you remember learning how to read? My students are still learning how to read and would love to continue reading with small leveled groups.

My students are amazing first graders who love to read.

I teach at a high poverty school in North Carolina. Although we are high poverty we are not Title One and therefore need some help getting important items we need like book sets for our book club time.

My Project

Our classroom has implemented Reader's Workshop all year. The students love Reader's Workshop time, but have been begging to read together. Since my sweet students have been begging to read together, we have decided to start a book club in our classroom. The students have been doing very well in book club and absolutely love it. I want my students to be able to continue their book clubs, but our school library only has a few sets of leveled books. Therefore, we really need some book sets so we can keep on learning to read and enjoy reading with our groups.

By helping fund this project, you will be helping 21 wonderful first graders and many first graders to come.

These book sets will be enjoyed and loved for years to come. Please consider helping our wonderful first graders get the books they need!
