This week I am celebrating the fact that my Donors Choose project was funded. I created a project in which I requested funds for chapter books so that I can encourage my readers to engage in more independent reading. I chose one or two titles in a number of chapter books series that I think will be of high interest to my readers. I am very grateful to have received a generous donation that allowed my projected to be funded. The books are already on their way. Once I have them I plan on doing some book talks to get students interested in reading the books. I am looking forward to sharing these books with my students and hearing what they think about them. These are some of the books I requested:
This is the second Donors Choose project that I have had funded in order to get reading materials for my students. I am very appreciative for the donors who check out these projects and donate. The organization provides a great option for teachers in need of resources and materials for their classrooms. For more information check out the website.
