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

All Kids Are Capable of Success!

My students need Story Works, by Scholastic, to support their delinquencies in ELA skills, specifically, reading comprehension, grammar, compare and contrast texts, identifying key details, events, and characters in a text, as well as sentence structure.

My Students

Our 5th grade students are talented and smart, each with their own unique and sometimes challenging personality. They come from impoverished homes in a very rural community, attending a Title I, K-8 school, whereas all students receive free breakfast and lunch. Our 5th grade students lack parental support relating to education. They come from homes where drug use, domestic violence, and their basic and emotional needs are minimally met.

Our school lacks funding, forcing teachers to spend the minimal income on their classroom to ensure students are provided with equitable resources to help prepare them for high school and higher education.

My goal is to help these students see their unique talents, think critically about issues and events, understand the importance of education, and believe in themselves and their abilities.

My Project

Scholastic Story Works provides multiple short stories, poems, and various interesting texts, aligned to AZ State Standards (Common Core), provides teacher guides, lessons and activities, audio texts, online materials/support, differentiated skill level, graphic organizers, and incorporates social studies and science curriculum to improve student reading, grammar, comprehension, and writing skills.

Story Works allows for more instruction time and student/teacher interaction by eliminating the need to prepare lesson plans, locate and copy materials, and modify materials to help varied learning styles and skill levels.

Activities such as, Readers Theater (skits), Think-Pair-Share (peer collaboration), and Read-Alouds (provides modeling and scaffolding between students and teachers) are strategies that are easily incorporated using Story Works to improve learning.

I plan to utilize Story Works as part of the daily ELA curriculum engaging students in whole class and RTI (Response to Intervention) reading groups, whereas more focus can be put on helping students improve their fluency, comprehension, and writing abilities.
