The Little Child That Could ...I Know I Can, I Know I Can..

My students need 5 sets of books to read independently, including titles from the Magic Tree House and Junie B Jones series.

We can become independent readers but we need your help! I am a fourth grade teacher in a school located in the inner city. This area may have high poverty and high crime rates but it has students that are eager to learn.

Our school tries to supply the students with books that they can read independently. However, with a large student population and a short supply of books, we are unable to meet this goal.

You can help these children be the "little engines that could" achieve their goal to be grade level readers and above. I know they can succeed, but we need books to keep the students on the right "track".

Help me help these children so their mantra will be "I know I can, I know I can". Your generosity can open a new world to them- one of an appreciation of literacy and the ability to enjoy a book independently.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
