Yes, my classroom already has a ton of books, but you know what it needs? More books!
Right now Amazon.com and Overstock.com are having a price war — so it is a great time to buy a book. (Don’t worry, the author still makes money, both companies are actually losing money right now just to have this war with each other.)
My wish list for my classroom….

As always, donations to a school are tax-deductible and I’ll make sure and provide you with a receipt for a donation! (And if you would be so kind to leave me a comment, I’ll take it off my list to prevent duplicates.)
Addendum: If you would like to donate funds instead of books, you can send to my paypal at email@example.com or you can mail books directly to school at DaVinci Academy, 13001 Central Ave NE, Blaine, MN 55434 — please put attn: MS ELA on the address so no one else claims them.
