Tra-La-La! Captain Underpants

Help me give my students engaging chapter books, such as Captain Underpants, to read during independent reading time.

My Students

"Teachers who love teaching, teach children who love learning."

As I enter my twentieth year of teaching, I continue to follow this mantra in my classroom.

I teach twenty-eight wonderful students who come from poverty. My students are from varying ethnic backgrounds. Most of them come from homes that are struggling financially.

My students are extremely motivated, and they are genuinely respectful of each other. They are lovers of learning, and I am truly grateful to be their teacher this year. They come to school with smiles on their faces, and they are eager to learn. We need new books to use in our literacy centers.

My Project

My first grade students are amazing readers. Story time is one of our favorite times of the day. My students love having books read to them. They also love our quiet independent reading time. They need funny, engaging chapter books, such as the Captain Underpants books for our independent reading time.

Captain Underpants makes students laugh and keeps them interested all the way to the end of the story.

He shows kids that it is ok to make mistakes. He is a good friend and the students can relate to him. We would love to have chapter books, such as Captain Underpants, to have in our classroom and for the students to read at home.
