TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students new fiction and nonfiction books so we can continue to love reading!
Our students come from middle-class suburbia. We're located in a small town in northeast Ohio where Friday nights mean walking to the local cafe after school to enjoy a chocolate chip cookie and football. It's a town steeped in tradition, and our kids attend school in the same building that William McKinley graduated from and Ida Tarbell taught in.
Our buildings are (literally) historical markers.
And while this is amazing, it is often not conducive to learning and playing sports in 2018. Our athletes and students are adaptive and embrace the uniqueness of our school.
Forget iPhones and Fortnite. My students want books, and I want them to learn to love all kinds of books.
"I try to teach students that books are a mirror, reflecting their own lives, and a window, giving them a peek into someone else's." (Donalyn Miller) This newest book request has been chosen specifically for the students who walked into my classroom this August.
As we've gotten to know each other as readers, I've realized I need to add some books to my collection based on their interests and needs. These books were chosen by the students themselves and include both fiction and nonfiction titles. There is already a waiting list for all of them. And when these books arrive in my classroom I have no doubt there will be a stampede to check them out.
