Mrs. Moyer from Middleburg FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bring The Joy Of Reading Back To My Classroom!

My students need rich, nonfiction, complex text science resources like ScienceWorld for students with on grade to above grade level reading ability and SuperScience for students on or below grade level reading abilities.

My Students

Of the 112 students in 6th grade, there are 56 students whom did not achieve proficiency on the FSA Reading and 48 students on the FSA Math. It is hard to swallow that a little under 50% of the 6th grade students struggle to read and comprehend complex text. I am personally responsible for 65 of the 112. My students live in a low socioeconomic community where many are not being raised by their biological parents and have little support at home to see a value in education.

My students are overcoming the hurdles they can not control and working to become valuable contributors to their community and families.

I looped up from 5th grade with my students, therefore, I know they need access to rich, complex text in reading, but just as importantly, in science and math. My classes include 7 speech impaired, 5 have occupational therapy, 15 ESE for Specific Learning Disability, 8 gifted, 1 hearing impaired and 1 vision impaired students.

My Project

I am requesting help to fund a subscription to Scholastic News magazines, "Super Science" and “Science World” to integrate cross curricular high interest text and current events happening in the real word. Also, I will be integrating language arts into my science curriculum during my science block. These magazines are a fabulous academic resource in many ways because they incorporate non-fiction, real-world themes, current events, and online enrichment activities.

The digital resources provide a flexible support for a wide range of learning styles and reading levels.

All of our scholars in sixth grade will have access to these magazines within a small group center throughout the week. My scholars will use these magazines to find factual information on the science standards that I teach as well as annotating their thinking or questions, identify main ideas and details, identify cause and effect relationships and compare and contrast text to video clips.
