My Students


This class is a group of students that are on the verge of becoming a positive force in our community.

Very rarely has there been a class of students with such a positive chemistry and amazing dynamic. In addition, they are voracious readers and it's our obligation to meet their needs.

We need help purchasing books in sets of 5 so that we can have sophisticated "Book Clubs." Having sets of five books of each different title helps to ensure that every student in each group can participate in the most effective manner.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that we strive to create. Our classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy. Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind. In fact I asked them to give me lists of their favorite titles because I believe their input is important. I have watched them the past few weeks of school read books just like these and I believe these novels will enhance the Book Club experience.

The reason that we are ordering the books in sets of five is connected to the "Book Club" aspect of their Reading Class.

This class will be both literally and metaphorically, "on the same page." I hope that we can fund this together to help create a better overall classroom experience.
