My students need a class set of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone plus an eBook to listen to and activities to go along with our new reading unit!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My goal for my students is to find the same enthusiasm for books as they have about life! My hope is they see the words jumping out of the pages and coming to life right before their very eyes.
My students work day after day to understand and comprehend all different types of texts.
They've become much stronger readers through their persistence and dedication in my class. Once they find a topic that intrigues them, we are able to dive in deeper and explore the world of reading a little more!
I'm excited about starting a new reading unit on "Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone!" We will be reading the book aloud and working in small groups to deepen their understanding and work on vocabulary throughout the book. I love creating opportunities for my students to critically think and I know this book will provide ample time to stretch their brains beyond what they believe their ability is. These projects will provide lasting and valuable skills that will be needed as they continue their education in the Dallas ISD school district.
My students live in an area and a time that doesn't encourage motivation to pick up a book and read on their own.
They live in a time where the tv, computer and gaming devices consume their mind and thoughts.
My hope is that through this book and the activities woven in and around it, my students develop a true passion to get lost in a book full of magical adventure!
