I am a 7Th grade science teacher in Austin, TX working at a school where over 90% of my students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Supplies are sometimes hard to come by for the students and they could greatly benefit from a little extra help to make vast gains academically and socially. I discovered Adventures of the Elements in October of 2005 and fell in love with the system. I purchased one set and read the books and looked through the card game that accompanied it and thought my students, who mostly have difficulty reading, would enjoy this. AOE is a book series written about chemistry and other science principles in super-hero style. I was able to order a class set of the first book, but would like to order a class set of books 2 and 3 and the card game so students can read in class, improving their reading skills as they learn about chemistry and interactions with their environment. If I received a class set of these books and games, all my students would be able to read these and play the game. This opportunity would greatly help students struggling to read and grasp more abstract concepts. I would appreciate any aid in helping my students become better readers, better people and show them anything is possible.
