Ms. Powers from Hawesville KY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

A Wrinkle in Time

My students need copies of A Wrinkle in Time for a novel study. We are currently reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I want to compare and contrast the characters of Lucy and Meg.

My Students

My students this year are very special. Every year students are different. But, at our school, kids are an especially tight-knit group. At a tiny, rural school, funds are limited. We are a Title I school with most students receiving free and reduced lunch. Last year, we lost our Reading Recovery Grant, Math Recovery Grant, and our 21st Century After School Program Grant a few years ago. With the pension crisis at stake, funding for public education in Kentucky is threatened to be cut with a whopping $16 million in textbook money and overall the state is looking to make large cuts in more special programs and transportation.

Our school is the community center where many events take place for families.

There is nothing commercially around us for several miles. Many families are coming from very poor situations. Our tax base is close to the lowest in the state. However, we want students to achieve at high levels no matter their circumstances. We want them to have the best of the best in all areas.

My Project

Fifth graders need to be exposed to Newberry Medal literature. Award winning novels for kids are crucial because they can inspire and create life-long readers and writers. This a great opportunity to complete a novel study over a classic body of work. We have just finished reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, also a fantasy novel. A fifth grade standard that still needs to be taught this year is to compare and contrast characters, settings, or events in similar genres. This could easily be done if we had these books!

Additionally, A Wrinkle in Time is coming out as a Disney movie in March.

What a great field trip this would be! Then we could compare and contrast the book to the movie as well.

The themes in these novels are similar. Good versus evil and love overcomes all are important lessons to be taught in today's society. More so with A Wrinkle in Time, the main character has some learning struggles. She doesn't do well at school, but she has a special ability despite this, and she truly has a kind heart.
