Minions of Books

Help me give my students lots of books to explore, engage and learn.

My Students

My unique, enthusiastic students are students in an inner-city, Title I school. All the students are entitled to free lunch, as well as breakfast. This does not stop their determination and hard work. These students are focused and fun to work with.

My students are an enthusiastic and diverse group of lifelong learners.

They love to learn and have a great work ethic. They are eager little learners. These children may be learners today, but they are the leaders of tomorrow.

My Project

Who doesn't love minions? How about "A Minion of Books?" Please help me provide anchor books and independent reading books to my students so they can be on the same playing field as others that have access to these texts. My students needs Wit and Wisdom Anchor Texts to manipulate and learn new strategies. Students need access to the texts themselves, not just me reading it to them. Knowledge is the key to success and I want to give my students every advantage they deserve and need to be successful and college bound. Please help me provide my students with tangibles they do not currently have.
