Yes, it's that time of year--the time of year when I harrass people to donate $$$ so I can provide more classroom library titles to my students. I've had two huge classroom library projects funded already, for which I'm eternally grateful. My current students are enjoying these past titles during Independent reading time!
My latest project asks mostly for social studies titles, including Time Mag for Kids. I also ask for other useful things, like a DVD set of School House Rock cartoons, and some novels about the Civil War and the immigrant experience. Whatever you can do to help, even if it's simply letting other people know about my project--would be greatly appreciated, and may help expunge any karmic debt you've accumulated, perhaps preventing your reincarnation as a slug of some sort.
