Travel Through Time with the Magic Tree House

My 30 students need two class sets of Magic Tree House books to help improve their comprehension.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Where else can you travel to visit polar bears in the Arctic and the plains of Africa but with the Magic Tree House!

My students are hard workers who love to read fun books.

They are eager to learn and expand their knowledge about the world. Our school is located in a lower economic area. Most of the time we work on providing as much of the basic materials as possible. Most of my students receive free/reduced breakfast and lunch.

My Project

I am asking for two class sets of Magic Tree House books. I would love to do whole class reads and help the students broaden their vocabulary skills. Magic Tree House is the perfect way to incorporate comprehension strategies while still enjoying the book. Through the use of their imagination, my students will be absorbed into the travels of Jack and Annie.

Please help my students learn that reading does not always have to be boring.

The Magic Tree House books are a perfect way to enjoy reading while practicing fluency and vocabulary.
