Our Classroom Library Grows!

Recently our class received approximately $450 in brand new books! Using an online donation site for teachers called Donorschoose.org, we were able to submit a request for new books. Then parents,family members and anonymous donors donated to our project. Thanks to everyone's generosity we were fully funded in five days and received our books two days later! 

New books provide excitement and help with student motivation to read. The kids were excited to say the least and the books have been flying around the classroom. 

We would like to thank all of the donors who helped us get these new books. We truly appreciate your support.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Day!

On Wed, November 5 our classes celebrated the release of the newest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, The Long Haul.  A copy for each student was provided by the donations of generous parents and with bonus points earned through parent orders through our monthly book orders. We appreciate your support!
The students learned how to draw Greg Heffley from the creator of the diary of a Wimpy kid series. 

Then they got their books and had time to read them alone or with their friends.
