Mrs. Grubb from Philadelphia PA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Readers and Writers

My students need blank books in order to create a keepsake of all of their writing from the 3rd grade. Throughout the year, we will add writing pieces that students can keep forever.

My Students

The students that I have the pleasure to teach are some of the most amazing people I have ever met. These students come to school each day excited and ready to learn. Their enthusiasm makes work such a joy and makes me want to better myself.

I wish that all teachers could be as lucky as I am to work in such a wonderful environment.

Going to work each day is something that I truly enjoy, and I have my students to thank!

My Project

Time for Kids will be used to keep students aware of things that are going on in the world. Students will write current event reports, as well as other types of projects. The events are kids friendly, and very informative.

The blank books will be used as a writing portfolio that students can keep at the end of the year.

Students will add each writing piece they complete over the course of their third grade year. During the last week of school, parents will come and view the books.

Both items will be useful in building actively engaged readers, and students with a love of writing.
