Mrs. Grimes from The Woodlands TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Library Expansion

My students need shorter chapter books like the Flat Stanley series, the Ready Freddy books, or Aliens for Breakfast.

My Students

My students are voracious readers, and they have quickly gone through my shorter chapter books! Their reading is too advanced for most first grade books, but they aren't ready for older content. I have to find books that will push them without getting into subjects they're not ready for!

My students are quirky!

I have all sorts of students including GT (gifted and talented) and ESL (English as a Second Language) friends. They have great personalities and are always looking for things that will spark their interest. These students want to learn and push themselves as much as possible. The wide range of personalities and learning styles makes it a very unique classroom!

My Project

I know that a couple of the titles (The Aliens for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner books) will fly off the shelves. The kids will vie to be the first one to find out what happens, and I know they will come and share each exciting event in the books with me. Some of the titles will be used in small groups-the Elephant and Piggie books are a ton of fun to use to teach expression when reading. A few of the books, like The Book With No Pictures, will be used as read alouds to model good reading and thinking during reading.

Donations to this project will open up new books to my kiddos which will in turn open up new worlds for them.

Teaching them to be excited about and to love reading at this age will follow them through life. Now is the time to catch their interest!
