Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech

My students need 125 copies of "Walk Two Moons" for reading! Please help me, help my students increase their love of reading through wonderful literacy experiences.

My Students

Do you remember what it was like the first time you read a book that you couldn't put down? One of the ideas that I try and instill in my students is a love of literacy. Students often have a difficult time relating to books or finding literature they enjoy...that is where I come in!

The middle school which I work in is one of the largest in New York State.

With 2300 students in grades 6-8, one often thinks "Wow! These students must get lost in the shuffle!" That is one of the most wonderful aspects of this school as students are cared for as if they were in a class of 10. The Sixth grade class of approximately 700 students come from 10 different elementary schools all with differing backgrounds and demographics. Although every student is different (obviously) they are all exuberant and fun loving. They have personalities that constantly make you laugh and find new ways to reach them. I am constantly changing and rearranging curricula to reach this year's group of students.

My Project

I am looking for the book Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech because every 2-3 years, I try to incorporate a new book into the curricula. This year my students read Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief. The students LOVED reading this book and got even more excited with "how different the book is from the movie". They would get excited and shout, "That wasn't in the movie. That was awesome, how come they took it out?" It was great to hear the joy and pleasure in their voices when they would read another "amazing" scene. Although over the last few years we were able to attain funding for new books, this has been cut due to the current economical climate. Books are necessary for children to learn about culture and the world around them. It helps them understand that there are others around them that can relate to similar issues and can connect on many levels. I am hoping that by attaining the new book Walk Two Moons, my students will continue their journey through literature.

Walk Two Moons is a novel that most middle school students and adults can relate to.

This novel is an emotional journey about a thirteen year old whose mother has disappeared. While trying to find her mother (with her grandparents), she tells a story about a friend named Phoebe whose mother also vanished. This is an engaging story of love and loss, told with humor and suspense. It is a richly layered novel about real and metaphorical journeys.
