Velocity of Books Program / Book Exchange - Free Books

I've been working on teaching schools to get book donations from their school communities. 

Over the last year, my son's and I have been successful in collecting 13,000 books.  About 10,000 came from our own collection efforts from non-profit organizations.



Once collected, we organize the books between fiction, non-fiction, chapter books, new reader... The teachers bring the students through the display area to select a book that they may take home and keep.

We are…

14 books educators should read...

Here are 14 books that I have read over the last two years that have had a positive effect and impact on me as an educator. Some of these books were read in the book club at Seckman High School, and some were read as part of my doctoral studies. Despite doing a lot more online reading of late (blogs, articles, etc...), I still feel that books play an important role in educator growth and development.

Collaboration Ideas

I am looking for a class to have a book club with. We would have weekly readings. Each student would weekly write a comment and respond to a comment. We are a second grade class and would like to work together with a class close to our age. We also need to be able to communicate in English only sorry.

Please Let Us Know!

We are also looking at a paper airplane project in the Spring.
