They Loved Ghost! Now for the Sequel!

My Students

My 6th grade students love reading and writing! They are creative, energetic, and have a great sense of humor. They speak more than ten languages combined, and hail from over six different countries. They are working hard to prepare for their transition to middle school.

I will miss seeing their faces as they move on and grow into smart, productive citizens in their communities.

Until then, I hope to continue to develop their literacy with me. Thanks for supporting their learning!

My Project

My students just finished the book "Ghost" by J. Reynolds. Kids who have not embraced reading in the past have devoured this book. Kids who are terrified of reading aloud suddenly are raising their hands. It has been transformational! Help them keep this winning streak by funding the purchase of a class set of the sequel to "Ghost," called "Patina." This one has a female protagonist, which our class is eager for.

For each kid to have a book in her/his hands is so special, and is something they rarely experience in today's middle grade classrooms.

Please consider donating to this project! It will benefit many years of students to come!
