Help me inspire my students. I have a classroom of 25-27 students, almost all at risk. I work in a rural school directly on the 'big' city limits. I teach all subjects, but mostly mathematics and reading. This year, I am a second grade teacher, but I will loop with my students next year. My school is also a 2-3 school as in it only holds the grades second and third. We are a school that believes in inspiring our students to always do better and to make life fun.

My students just finished a very long and hard poetry unit where their eyes were open to the concept of expressive and descriptive writing. The Fractured Fairytale unit can help take that creativity on to the next level. Without the proper books, the students creativity could be held back.

In my classroom, I as a teacher have a few Fractured Fairytale books myself, but nothing compared to what I need to teach this unit. If I am able to get the materials needed and teach, I feel that the students writing and reading skills will come to life in a fun, exciting, and meaningful way.

If the students can get these materials, then you will have helped open their eyes to the fact that writing is not all about indenting and three to five sentences. The students will want to write for fun and you will have helped inspire them to do so!
