BABSON PARK – Anna Flint’s first graders at Dale R. Fair Babson Park Elementary used a high-tech method to ensure every student in the class got a free copy of “Magic Tree House” – they posted a grant request on Donor’s Choose online.
Earlier this month, Flint’s class received a class set of “Magic Tree House” chapter books after donors read the proposal online and decided to fulfill the request. Pictured with the books are (front l-r) Jada Rentz, Laci Waters, Mia McCollum, Daniel Martinez; (back l-r) P.J. O’Neill, Lane Cutts, Yamil Lopez, and Stephen Rhodda.
Flint promised her students that each one will receive a copy of the book after they learn to read all 340 “first grade words.”
“The chapter books have really helped encourage the students to read,” Flint said.
