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

Learning About America

My students need social studies books and workbooks to help them learn the objectives for second grade. I try to provide books and workbooks that they can use to meet the objectives.

My Students

My school is a low-income, urban school serving a group of students that doesn't have a lot of help learning about the world. This does not stop me in my quest to help each student become the best they can in the year that I have them. The students love to learn and enjoy the challenges I give them throughout the year.

Many of the students do not have what they need to get through each day and I try to give them what I can to help.

Showing that someone loves them outside of their family can really brighten the day of any student and these wonderful kids need all the love they can get.

I hope that I can continue to bring joy to each student as we go through the year learning and exploring together.

My Project

These books will be used in reading groups to teach the students about America and the people that have made our country what it is today. Having a workbook for teaching maps is very important also. In a society full of GPS, it is great to teach students about maps, how to read them and how to make them.

Having materials that help my students meet the social studies standards is crucial to their learning.

I hope to use these materials to help the students learn important skills, and to increase their prior knowledge in order to make it easier as they progress through school.

Most students in low income areas do not possess the prior knowledge that we did growing up and these books and workbooks will guide them on the path of becoming great citizens and help lead them into their roles in the future. It is very important the today's students know where we came from in order to be tomorrow's leaders.
