Hi, this is my third year teaching in third grade. I teach 16 students in a public school in Wisconsin. My school is small in size (two classes share each classroom) but has a big heart. That heart comes from the students, families, and staff!

While teaching third grade during the past two years, I've introduced my students to chapter books. Since we have no class sets of chapter books for third grade classrooms, we've come across some problems. Usually I request separate copies of a book title from various public libraries and wait for them to arrive. Then my students each see a book as we read it. Other times I would pass the book around and my students would look at it in their spare time. But now I'm asking you for help to buy some class sets of chapter books! I'm also interested in obtaining beanbag chairs to create a students only reading corner in my classroom. I hope to spark the love of reading in my students by allowing them to have their own special space in our small classroom to read.

I would love to have a class set of each of the following chapter books, "Stuart Little" by E.B. White and "Mishmash" by Molly Cone. I would also love to have 3 beanbag chairs to create a special reading area in my classroom. This project will allow each student to read along with me when I read and motivate them to read on their own in the student only reading center.

This project will forever change my classroom. Please help fund this project by giving one book to each child and bean bag chairs to create a student only reading center in our small classroom.
