Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Have you ever read a book that you just could not put down? Well, my students LOVE the author Roland Smith and so do I!!! My 5th graders love book clubs so Cryptid Hunters and Elephant Run will be PERFECT!!!

I have a wonderful group of 5th graders this year!

Many of them are voracious readers and can't put the books down that we read in class. So we started book clubs and they absolutely adore doing them! We have also partnered with another 5th grade class and share the book club materials to keep the cost down. This way we are reaching DOUBLE the VORACIOUS readers!!!

My Project

This author is awesome and the students really enjoy his books! With this class set of Elephant Run and Cryptid Hunters we will be able to read and enjoy them for many years to come! These books provide the action the students crave when reading and it puts a smile on their faces EVERY time they pick up a book that they can enjoy.

This donation will impact my 38 students in addition to my future students.

I have also partnered with another teacher so the class sets will DOUBLE the impact and allow even more students to enjoy these awesome books!
