Mrs. Thompson from Seneca SC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Books Might be WIMPY...but The Readers are STRONG!

My students need copies of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books to help make our library more engaging!

My Students

"Did I just read that?" I'll never forget the day that one of my students, who was reading first and second grade books with a lot of difficulty, read AND UNDERSTOOD a high-level book he had wanted to read since the beginning of the year. "I read it! I read it! I love to read now!"

This is why I do what I do.

I want to show my students that learning isn't just something you do at school. It's something that gives you the key to a door that opens to a whole new world ready for you to explore. Students enter worlds they never knew existed and understand concepts they never dreamed to imagine.

My students are a group of wild, independent, and vastly different people that, without realizing it, end up teaching me more than I could ever teach them.

My Project

My students love reading! This year I have noticed my students love going through various book series. While my library has many books, I would like to be able to offer more collections of series books.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid books are written in a way that proves to be especially helpful in engaging reluctant readers.

I'm so grateful Jeff Kinney decided to write books for kids! They are filled with humor that my kids love along with sketches that help my students better comprehend the story. I love these books and many of my students (particularly the boys!) love laughing as they read. Honestly, my students don't look at these books as pages they have to read...but stories they get to enjoy!

Having this set of books will help my students to build up their reading stamina and make independent reading something they look forward to!
