Ms. Murphey from Sherman TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Come into My World!

Help me give my students great books to read along with all their classmates.

My Students

Help! They don't have access to books! Each year we begin with a fun novel, which I read aloud. We have an entire unit based on the book and learn all other disciplines through the novel. However, as of now, students do not have access to books because of Covid19. Not only are their schools closed, so are public libraries and even stores to buy books.

How wonderful it would be for each of my students to be reading the same book at the same time as we traverse this very different learning landscape.

Our campus is a low income location and students rarely purchase their own books. To have engaging reading material that can have an entire unit built around it would keep students interested and creative.

My Project

Once fully funded, the students would read passages on their own and aloud on Zoom. We could have projects, like building habitats for Humphrey or Marvin, depending on grade level. Since Humphrey keeps a journal, we could incorporate their own journal writing. Students could use graphing skills for planning, as well as research the habitats of such creatures.

There is something about the miniature world that really draws kids in.

Both books lend themselves to teaching literary devices. Culminating activities of researching and writing essays and sharing on Zoom what they learned would, no doubt, keep them engaged throughout the unit of study.
