Ms. Cooper from Albuquerque NM is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Across Five Aprils

My students need this class set of Across Five Aprils so that we can study the American Civil War and award-winning literature.

  • $158 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

How can we close the achievement gap when students do not have the necessary materials to succeed?

My students are enthusiastic learners with a craving for knowledge.

They are bright and inquisitive. I would like to teach them aboutje Civil War by using this novel.

We are classified as a low-income school.

Just as an example, half of my students receive "backpack food bundles" to take home each Friday afternoon. I came to be their teacher in October. Please help me help them.

My Project

We will integrate Social Studies and Literacy with these books. Three classes will benefit from reading these books, since I teach Social Studies to two fifth grade classes.

This is an award winning novel.

The character is close to the age of my students. They will be able to relate to the main character. These books will make learning about the Civil War more interesting and exciting. These novels will help them relate to the events of the time by reading about a character their age. As a final project, my students will conduct a research project and make a technology-based presentation.
