Teacher Justina Frateschi's third-grade class at Van Buren Elementary School has received a donation of the entire three-book series "The Diary of a Wimpy Kid" from the Web site donorschose.org.
Donorschoose.org is a not-for-profit web site that enables public school teachers to list proposals for the funding for materials for projects that will enhance or reinforce their students' curriculum. Visitors to the site can read the proposals and contribute to or provide complete funding for any of the projects.
Frateschi's class received eight hard cover copies of each book, 24 in total, which students will use in small reading groups for enrichment.
Third-graders in teacher Justina Frateschi's class are excited to have the whole series of "The Diary of a Wimpy Kid" for their classroom.
