Blown Away by a Wind in the Door

My students need a class set of "A Wind In the Door" to continue their love of Madeleine L'Engle!

My Students

My middle school students attend a rural K-12 school in east central Oklahoma. They come from strong families with deep roots and have a lot of pride in their school and community. They truly enjoy school and make an effort to give their best every day.

Parents in our community are very involved in their children's education and partner with teachers to prioritize academics.

As a result, I am constantly seeking to improve and expand my curriculum to make it more challenging and relevant.

My Project

My students and I are currently reading "A Wrinkle In Time" and they cannot get enough! When the bell rings or the assigned reading is over for the day, they are begging for more!

My students are engaged in discussion like never before.

Their writing is deep and personal without my having to drag it out of them. I have been thoroughly impressed with their responses to the novel.

On my quest to find more novels for my class, I was so excited to see that there are four more books in this series! This is the first of four projects I will be posting in hopes of getting class sets. "A Wind in the Door" is expected to be even more amazing than the first book!
