Mrs. James from Warren OH is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Serious About Series Books

My students need a selection of books that will keep their interest. With series books such as Stick Dog and Dory Fantasmagory my students will be motivated to dive into another book.

My Students

My students are funny, thoughtful, creative, intelligent, and passionate about learning everyday! Each of my students are unique with interests and passions of their own. I teach 3rd grade students with a wide range of abilities and reading levels.

My 3rd graders work so hard every day to pass Ohio's Third Grade Reading Guarantee.

Ohio's Third Grade Reading Guarantee is a program to identify students from kindergarten through grade 3 that are behind in reading. Schools will provide help and support to make sure students are on track for reading success by the end of third grade.

My students are eager to become better readers each and every day. My students are in need of new, updated chapter books for our classroom library. I want to be able to provide them with a wide variety of leveled books that they will LOVE and become captivated in to further instill a passion for reading in their young, developing minds.

My Project

My students love having the chance to choose their own "just right" books for independent reading. In order to provide my students with the best experience reading self-selected books, I need a library filled with diverse texts to select from. Many students do not have access to books at home and rely on school to be a source of rich exciting literature that meets their young needs and interests.

The small library I have collected is mostly filled with gently used or donated texts.

My students will devour these books every day in our classroom!

They keep asking for more books and I want to make sure I continue to provide a rich environment of literacy in my classroom. I know my students will appreciate the new books s in our classroom library and that they will put them to good use!
