Mrs. Deputy from Woodbridge VA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the gift of reading! These titles are the Virginia Readers' Choice books for the 19-20 school year. We will read these books during a lunch time book club and vote for our favorites.
Our library serves a diverse population of over 2200 students in Northern Virginia. Our students' backgrounds range across racial, ethnic, religious, and socio-economic spectrums.
Our students crave books that reflect their own images while also revealing windows into the world around them, and we strive to maintain a book collection with something for each student.
We must also build programming to appeal to all backgrounds.
Some of our students love reading, but some of them do not. Our goal is to help all of them find a book that speaks to them on a personal level.
Our library is establishing lunch time book clubs where students can discuss critically acclaimed titles in a low-stress environment. Each year, our state reading association selects a variety of books for our students to read, and students ultimately vote for their favorite.
Please help us provide multiple copies of these Virginia Readers' Choice titles for our students.
With multiple copies, each student will have adequate time to read and prepare for a discussion. In our low-stress setting, students will have the opportunity to read and enjoy the books without the pressure of looming assignments, but with the expectation of accountability.
Thank you for your support!
