Ms. Straus from Mesa AZ is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Wrinkle in Time Novel Study

My students need a copy each of A Wrinkle in Time to use as their class study novel. It is crucial that each child has one so they can follow along and gain new vocabulary skills.

My Students

My students come from a variety of different economical and social backgrounds. This is a title I school and more than 70% of our students receive free or reduced lunch. My students recently did a novel study on Wonder and went to see the movie and the different connections the students made were AMAZING. They were excited to see the difference between reading a novel and watching a movie and were eager to finish the book. I would love to keep the excitement of reading going in my classroom and have my students do a novel study on A Wrinkle in Time. This is a special education class and A Wrinkle in Time is appropriate for the academic levels present in my class while still creating a challenge for students.

My Project

My project is to supply my classroom with books for my students to complete their novel study on A Wrinkle in Time. It is so significant to keep children engaged and eager to read literature. My students previously read Wonder and learned multiple lessons on kindness and how to treat others who may be different than you.

My students are begging me to do another novel study because they had so much fun reading Wonder and seeing the movie; I want to keep the positive energy going and keep my students interested in the relaxation of reading!

Thank you to those who are willing and wanting to support my classroom!
