Ms. Birch from Farr West UT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Small Reading Book Club Books

Help me give my students sets of books for our small reading groups and book clubs. Each day, our grade level breaks into ten groups to do small group instruction for reading. We are running out of books.

My Students

My class is full of amazing kids that are building their future day by day by building others, skills, confidence, knowledge, friendships, and memories. We have fun together by learning new things each day. We focus on a growth mindset and focus on teaching the whole child.

Because we are in a brand new school this year, our classroom theme is BUILD.

We will have many lessons on how we can build something wonderful, one step (brick) at a time. I am excited to see what wonderful memories are built this year.

My Project

Exposing our students to quality literature will help keep them motivated to read. With our program, our students are improving in their speed and accuracy. We are running out of books faster since they are reading so much more. Each group has six students, so we need sets of six. The books I have selected, are books my students have chosen as books they would like to read. Please help our class by donating money to help our third graders expand their reading exposure and reading fluency. When students love to read, they will become strong readers. Thank you much!
