HELP US LEARN!!! I teach all subjects in fourth grade! Our school is lacking when it comes to funds! Reading is a very important factor in my student's education and I want to provide lots of interesting books, they would want to read! Students will use the classroom library everyday, multiple times a day! Not only will the students in my classroom benefit from an awesome library, future students will as well! Reading is the fundamental component in education.

We are an old school and I feel we are often forgotten about. Our school is 35 years old! There are new schools being built all around us, getting all the coolest and latest stuff! We do not get all the supplemental materials the other schools get, but are still expected to do as well. We are at a major disadvantage!

The books I chose are not only different in subject matter, they are the classics that are often forgotten about in this day and age. As my student is reading or summarizing their book to their parents, I would love for my parents to relate to their children! Because they are classics, maybe my student's parents read them when they were in school as well!

I want my students to be engaged during Drop Everything And Read and ask for more time READ!!! I want them to be so crazy about reading their book, they finish it in one night because they just can't put it down!!
