My Students

As a magnet school, my students come from all over the county. Some spend over an hour on the bus just to come to school every day. I want to always make reading, writing, and learning fun for them. Being able to provide students with resources and materials would be wonderful so that students do not have to worry about providing these materials themselves.

My Project

My students experienced a rough spring when schools were forced to close due to the pandemic. As a consequence, I've had to double my planning efforts to locate the best novels to read. This year I want to find a novel that students have never read before. This will offer them a chance to read something new and interesting. Since reading is an essential part of my classroom I need to provide interest reading.

Help me offer my students an opportunity to read a new novel in my class.

Getting enough copies of a novel to read as a class is often a challenge so this class set of books will help to meet the needs of my classroom by offering each student a copy to read from.
