Mrs. Buchanan from Fayetteville TN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creating Grammar Groupies!

My students need 30 copies of this wonderful little book "Checking Your Grammar (Scholastic Guides)" to help them learn grammar concepts.

Middle school students rock! That's what I think anyway. I teach a bunch of crazy nuts in a rural middle school. Yes, it can be a tough age but they are also naturally curious and willing to try out new ideas. My students are sixth and seventh graders who just happen to live in one of the poorest counties in the state. They are a bright group and deserve every opportunity to reach their fullest potential.

As I said, this is a poor community and our resources to buy books are minimal at best. The grammar textbook we use was here when I came to this school five years ago and it was not new then. It is outdated and, as of this writing, there is no sign of getting a new book.

I have found a great little paperback book, Checking Your Grammar (Scholastic Guides), that makes it easy to understand the grammar rules that all these kids must learn to be successful with their writing. It would be so wonderful to have a class set (30) of these little books so that the kids can each have one to read and work from.

Your help with this project would help my students to be better writers. Since they will all need to be skilled communicators no matter what their futures hold, you could indeed play an important role in their lives.
