My Students

My students are rocking reading this year! They are so eager to have books in their hands. Our classroom library primarily consist of storybooks and these growing readers need more. We are in need of chapter books to help these readers soar to new heights!

My students are excited about reading.

They have discovered some favorite characters that they want to learn more about: Fly Guy, Junie B. Jones, Nancy Clancy, and Flat Stanley to name just a few. Our classroom library is very limited to the types of chapter books they need to grow as readers.

My Project

My students need chapter books to grow as readers. These books will be purchased and placed in our classroom library. The classroom library is a cuddly place where kids love to snuggle up with a good book. Children check out books and keep them safe in their own reading bag. During our day, whether at Reader's Workshop or free time children are often engaged in reading their favorite books.

These children have so much enthusiasm for reading.

They are growing by leaps and bounds. Your donation would provide each child with more appropriate text in their hands. It would enable our readers to grow to the next level!
