Wimpy Kids NOT Wimpy Readers

My students need new copies of 12 of our hottest classroom books, the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series. These are the books I cannot keep on the shelves. They have literally had their covers read-off!

My Students

We just finished our first ever Book-a-Day Challenge over Thanksgiving Break. 78 of my 110 students committed, and finished one entire book for each day of the 4-day break. They are readers devouring books so much so that many of our class favorites are falling apart at the seams...literally!

I have 110 4th and 5th grade students, most of whom are bilingual and all who are becoming bi-literate!

We are an English/Spanish dual language school where all kids are learning to read and write in both languages; approximately 70% of my students have parents who read and write primarily in Spanish.

My Project

My kids have set goals to read upwards of 40 books during this school year. Some of the most popular books: Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dork Diaries and Big Nate are passed from hand to hand, never returning to the shelf for a moment before being read by the next students. Our current editions have traveled all over the state, as well as to Mexico, El Salvador, and Guatemala. We desperately need new copies to replaces the ones that are taped and rubber-banded together.

Not only will this group of students be thrilled to get new copies, but the second and third graders coming to our reading class next year will be greeted by the familiar favorites they will come to love as well.
