Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are reading, reading, and reading. In fact, the top five readers in the whole school are in my room. We need more books.

My students are from a low socioeconomic area in a small town.

My students are from various backgrounds. Our school sets high expectations for students. One expectation is to read. My students are bookworms. They always have a book in their hand.

My Project

The American Chillers series by Johnathon Rand will appeal to my students. My students loved reading about Percy Jackson. They will love reading this series. I will add the various books to my classroom library so students can read them during independent reading time. By reading these books, my students will increase their vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension skills.

Reading is one of the most important skills in our future careers.

Please help me keep my students interested in reading. We need more books in our classroom library. I want them to become a success.
