My Students

I have 24 hard working third graders this year. They are highly engaged by new books. They love when our Scholastic book box comes in or when I place new books on our shelves with recommendations.

I'd like to do a Starbooks classroom transformation with them with newly published books and a variety of genres.

I have collaborated with Brooklyn McCarly of Brooklyn's Finest to prep the classroom with graphic organizers, posters, table signs, and more. Now I just need the books!

My Project

We have been inspired by Brookyn McCarely to do a Starbooks classroom transformation. We will be learning about genres and need new books to add to our tables. There's something about reading a new book that just brings joy to a child's face. These are some books that we viewed this past week at our Scholastic Book Fair. Our teacher was able to purchase some books for us, thanks to our PTA, but we would love to have these books as well. They were in our wish list basket, but remained in the basked when the book fair ended. Thank you for taking the time to read our project. Please consider donating or sharing the link with friends and family.
