Third Graders Want To Read, Read and Read!

My students need one copy of 25 book titles.

Third Graders want to read, read, and read some more! I teach third grade in an high-needs community where the children deserve a chance to enhance their reading potential. I have children who read on a first grade level up to a third grade level. They all want the same thing... the gift to read.

I am a "new" teacher in an "old" classroom where there is a very limited classroom library. I have a diverse group of learners that all want the same goal - to enhance their ability to read.

We need more good, award-winning books in our classroom. As my classroom population is diverse, we wish to have books that include many cultures while teaching the same important message - "Reading is the key to success."

Your help will insure that my diverse learners will all have an equal chance to read books on their level.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
