Ms. Doyle from Las Vegas NV is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Myth, A Fable, and Fairy Tale Oh my!

My students need classroom experiences that will encourage them to seek out and understand multiple genres of literature. I would like to use A Myth, A Fable, and A Fairy Tale plays to encourage my students to interact with each other and read aloud in the classroom

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, I see my students faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. A majority of my students are English Language Learners. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide them with the tools they need to be successful in and outside of the classroom.

My students are creative, excited to learn, caring, and thoughtful to one another.

Our classroom is a safe and constant environment. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free breakfast and lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control what happens outside of school, however, I can certainly enhance their school experience. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire life long learning.

My Project

I have 120 fifth grade students that I work with everyday. Many of them read below grade level and due to English being a second language need practice reading aloud. Unfortunately, some do not have anyone to read to at home. I would like to use A Myth, A Fable, and A Fairy Tale plays to encourage my students to interact with each other and read aloud in the classroom. These are leveled plays that can be utilized by all my students regardless of their lower level. I plan to use them in small groups with students supporting each other.
