My students need the full box set of American Chillers book series to encourage reading.
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."-Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
This quote could not have said it better! I encourage my students to read every single night. At times this can be a challenge without the resources.
My students are the most determined students I have ever met.
They come to school every day ready to learn and succeed. I teach third grade in a Title-One school that is predominately Hispanic. The majority of my students are English Language Learners (20 out of 21). Many of my students do not have access to books on their level at home. If they do, they may not be of interest to them or they have read them several times.
Having the opportunity to bring the American Chillers book series into my classroom will encourage my boys (and maybe girls) to read. It is difficult to engage boys especially in reading and I want to change that in my classroom. If I provide the American Chillers series to them, they will have the opportunity to read something that interests them.
Every morning I allow my students to "check-out" books from our classroom library. I will be able to add 37 attractive titles for my boys if this project is funded through Donors Choose. Giving my students a choice in what they read is so important for students. They have to love what they are reading in order to love reading. My students will absolutely love reading about the different states and the different "chiller" that each book has to offer.
If our wish is granted, I will be able to encourage my students to read high-interest books that are on their level.
They will be able to bring the books home so they are not only reading in the classroom, but also in their free time. Please help bring this amazing book series into my students hands!
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
