Digging our Hands into Common Core Curriculum

My students need a collection of fiction and nonfiction books that match our thematic units, as well as, some materials to help them get hands on with their learning.

My Students

If children do not get the help that they need before the age of 7, it is exponentially harder for them to ever catch up to where they should be. 22 out of 25 of my students came to me this year academically below grade level, so it is crucial that I get them motivated and engaged in their learning.

Most of my students come from low income families and many live in single parent homes or with aunts or grandmas.

We have a high level of English language learners whose parents are not able to help with reading or homework at home. These children are great kids who just need some extra love, support, and a push in the right direction. They are eager to learn and ready to take on some challenges. In order to give these children what they need at school, we need the tools for differentiated instruction and materials to get them hands on in their learning.

My Project

With the everyday challenges that these children already face and the increasing level of expectations that are put on them, we need all of the help that we can get to keep them on track. The books that I am requesting will supply us with a library of fiction and nonfiction literature that support our cross-curricular thematic units that we've developed. The materials in this project will help get the students engaged and will supply a more hands on approach so they can take ownership over their learning. They will be able to manipulate and explore with these materials to build their own knowledge instead of just hearing it in a book or having their teacher tell them that is the way it is with no real connection to the subject matter. By being able to implement these thematic units with all of the tools necessary, these children will get a deeper understanding of the world around them and will play an active role in their own learning.

Your donation will put quality literature and tools in these children's hands, which will open up new worlds for them.

Your donation will help build independent learners by giving them an active role in their own education. It will keep them excited about learning and exploration, which will create life long learners.
