Molly's Pilgrim Novel Set

My students need a class set of Molly's Pilgrim for a novel study, and the study guides so that they can get more out of the book.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The Common Core has allowed me to incorporate more novels into our literacy units. However, good novels are expensive, especially when you are buying a full classroom set. I want my students to be exposed to a variety of texts by the end of the year and my biggest challenge is purchasing them.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds.

We service the homeless shelter and have a large population of refugee students including other English Language Learners from a variety of first languages. Many of these students have limited access to books. Please help us get a greater variety of books into our curriculum.

My Project

In our curriculum we have a unit about then and now. We focus on the movement of people into and across America. Molly's Pilgrim is a great book about modern day pilgrims. It is a wonderful story about a family who immigrates to America and how the little girl tries to fit into her new school.

You will help students who come from a variety of backgrounds learn about different populations of people as we tie it to our second and third grade curriculum.

Please help me build my novel sets so that students for years can enjoy wonderful books.
