Mrs. Ackiss from Choctaw OK is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

Within the walls of our classroom, we learn to love, lead, read and write! My students balance a great deal of responsibility for 10-12 year olds with rotating classrooms, curriculum and outside school activities. Most of my students want to be challenged and they all love engaging, active lessons.

My students are a dynamic crew of future world changers.

They overcome many uncontrollable environmental obstacles and they don't use their short comings as an excuse to not do their best.

My Project

Teaching 70+ children reading every year creates wear and tear on some of our most beloved novels. It is difficult to keep many of these books on the shelf and those that remain are falling apart. By having the complete series of Harry Potter, Matched, Dork Diaries, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Maximum Ride, it will give my readers the ability to read their favorite books in order and without the pages and backs coming apart. The movie "The Mighty" will be viewed after we complete a classroom literature study on its corresponding novel to learn how to compare and contrast a novel to its movie.
