Books Fulfill the Dreams

My students need 35 copies of The Watsons Go to Birmingham and class sets of other books to read and ink cartridges to print out their storyboard.

My Students

My students are willing to read books. They come to class and ask for the books to read because they want to build up their vocabulary and simply master the language skills. My students create a storyboard on computer and want to print out to display. Thus, they need an ink cartridge for printer.

My students are from different cultures, ethnicities, and religions.

They attend our school which has no budget for updating and enhancing the classroom library. The books they would need will possibly improve their language skills they need to be competent in the business world. My students come to our school with the expectation of improving and then mastering their language skills.

My Project

My students will read The Watsons Go to Birmingham and other books donated by DonorsChoose. They will then create a story board by analyzing and evaluating the characters and events which they will use to form opinions. Using the donated ink cartridges, students will design a storyboard related to their reading and print out their design to display and share with their parents.

My project will make a huge difference in my students' life.

As a result of my project, my students will improve their vocabulary, comprehension skills, and then master the language skills. They will use the language skills when they contribute to our country by being competent citizens who will apply the skills from reading into the real-life situations.
