Mrs. Moses from Williamsburg KY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a set of the books Poppy by Avi.
I teach an amazing group of students in Southern Appalachia. My students love using hands-on activities to learn. Despite challenges in some of their home lives, these students come to class every day ready to learn and do their best. I try my best to find new ways to help keep them engaged in learning and moving forward.
One hundred percent of the students at our school receive free breakfast and lunch.
Many of our students are given a backpack of food for each weekend or break from school. My students are hard workers and are willing to do what it takes to be successful one day.
My students are hungry to learn. They are loving the Dimwood Forest series by Avi, and having the chance to dissect an owl pellet will help cement this reading experience in their minds. It will build a connection between the text and science, and the text and a real life experience. Students will be allowed to dissect an owl pellet during class while reading the book Poppy. They will have the opportunity to look for rodent bones and teeth, and match them to an identification key. They will learn about the relationship between owls and rodents and how to sort bones.
Students will learn while having fun!!
I'm looking for a way to make reading memories with kids. They will forever remember the pellet dissection, and the story that was read to them (Poppy). It is my hope that this activity will light a fire in my young readers and encourage them to read, read, read. Having their own book and the dissection experience should make reading very interesting.
