My Students

Wow! What an amazing group of students! My class is so adventurous, curious and full of love and energy! More importantly, they love to read!

Your donations can help foster their love of reading and make a dream of having their own copies come true!

What an amazing gift!

Thank you for supporting education and helping make the future a little brighter for these eager minds. We can't wait to start our next reading project! We're so excited to read!

My Project

Children love to be read to! When I asked them for ideas on which books they wanted to read, these were just a few that they named. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach were two books that I loved reading as a kid and it makes my heart happy that my students want to read them as well!

As a class, we enjoy reading together and it means a lot for each child to have their own copy of the book.

They can follow along if they choose to or sit and listen if they prefer. Having their own copy allows them that choice.

Seeing children love to read is just one of the things that make teaching so rewarding. Thank you for your help it making this happen for my class!
