Mrs. Gray from Sonora CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Hunger Games... Middle School Edition!

My students need “The Hunger Games” so I can engage my students in a novel study for years to come. This is an amazing book and my students will LOVE to read this fabulous text!

My Students

Middle school can be a VERY tough age. So many emotions, so many hormones but one thing I do know about pre-teens is their love of drama in EVERYTHING, including the books they read. My students are amazing kids and I would love to bring fresh literature into the classroom to truly grab their attention.

The students in my classroom are thirsty for new books that are more tailored to their 21st century needs.

They are wanting to be engrossed in literature but my broken and falling apart "Call of the Wild" books are not doing the job. We would love to see "The Hunger Games," "Cinder," and other novels to truly hook my students.

My Project

My books are falling apart! After years of using the same texts, I would love to use “The Hunger Games” in a novel study to engage my students into 21st century learning.

This is a fabulous story that will get my students leaning and LOVING to world of literature.

We will use this novel with my 8th graders to transport them into a world of desperation and resilience. This novel will grab my students attention in a world where very little can do that. Middle schoolers will be fully emersed in this story and so will their teacher. Thank you!!
