Ms. Didway from Coconut Creek FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Imagine YOUR Adventure With the Right MINDSET!

My students need these books to develop a mind set of diversity and acceptance. We need these materials to hear others' stories of hardship, and triumph.

My Students

Didway's Adventure Seekers, as I like to call them, are a group of young spirited minds with a natural thirst and desire to absorb books and increase their knowledge through hands on activities, and STEAM based projects. Our class is made up diverse collection of children. We are a blended group of nationalities, beliefs/cultures, and a wide variety of ability levels.

We are all respectfully working from a wide range of levels, but as long as we always TRY our best we are ALL WINNING!

We are learning about self worth and mindset to instill positive thinking in ourselves. Our mission is to grow into kind spirited thinkers and we want spread this with anyone who comes into our path. Our goal is to make the world a kinder place. We are determined and have the hearts and determination to achieve greatness!

My Project

Books enhance the literature based classroom that I strive to create/maintain. Our classroom library is a place where my students lay down on our "Field of Dreams" baseball inspired carpet with pillows, blankets, flexible seating options, they are encouraged to complete work there, and they read independently! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read.

All of these books have been chosen with my students' 'minds' in mind.

These books encourage the mindset thinking that ultimately will lead to "mindful" students. I will use these books to encourage trying, and that mistakes are expected and NOT a failure but rather an attempt. Students with a growth mindset, tend to experience greater success in work, relationships, and life in general than those with a fixed mindset – or people who feel intelligence is set at birth, unmalleable, and impossible to change. I want to be part of this change and help CREATE successful students.
