Mrs. McGregor from Keller TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Begin: Book One in a Series

My students need the next set of books to keep them interested in reading. They enjoy book series because of intricate plots, relevant and well-developed characters, and the complex connections they can create in book series.

My Students

A fourth year of Gifted and Talented language arts is off to a promising start. My students' curiosity is unlike previous years. They want to read more. They want to write more. They want to learn through inquiry and collaboration.

My students' personalities are lively enough to illuminate any dark room.

I want to satisfy their learning desires by providing multiple chances for reading, writing, and collaboration.

I want them to continue to read, think, and talk about texts they would not have picked to read by themselves. I want them to leave my classroom as curious readers, writers, and thinkers. I want them to leave my classroom as promising literacy leaders of the future!

My Project

Students will be able continue to choose and read books they want to read. With these first books in a series, I hope to engage students with new titles that peek their interest. Mostly, I hope they are so intrigued they continue to read the series on their own or as a new book club.

This new collection of book titles will enhance students' reading opportunities by giving them access to award-winning book series.

Most students are quickly reading through one book during our literature circles, but offering a book series to a group will allow the group to continue their collaboration, discussions, and understanding of the characters and plot.
