Ms. LeFever from Bronx NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need copies of the book Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt. This text relates directly to my student population, as I teach students with learning disabilities.
My students have special needs and special abilities. They come from a community where they all receive free lunch and breakfast. Some can barely afford school supplies. I did what I could this year in buying things that could get them where they need to be, but it isn't nearly enough. With children who are two to three grade levels behind, I'm left to get them to a point of growth. Supplying my students with classroom resources will give them the hope they need to realize that success is at their finger tips.
All students have a promising future, but that future needs to be ignited by their inner potential.
I want to set my students up for success, and that setup involves getting them the resources that need to be challenged, and pushed to the next level. Each student is different, but sometimes we can expect them to fall into a cookie cutter mold that is far beyond realistic. As any passionate teacher would, I want the best for my students.
This book will help bring awareness to the abilities and disabilities of my students. It will help my students boost their confidence in their abilities and use their "disabilities" to their advantage.
Fish in A Tree is a book that gives students hope by sending the message that "Great minds don't all think alike; if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid." In addition, students will gain literary skills while reading a book that mirrors what they may experience as students with disabilities.
This book's premise is based on the idea that individuality is what makes us great. We don't all learn the same way, but we all have the ability to learn.
