Ms. Roblin from Miami FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning Doesn't Have to be BORING

Help me give my students tools to read and learn in a fun way. Aside from reading a non-fiction novel, I am hoping to encourage learning in a fun way and to foster a love of learning.

My Students

Imagine being greeted with enthusiasm, hope, bright eyes and open minds on the first day of school. Their minds are ready and willing to be filled with knowledge. Every teacher's dream, right? However, they are some weaknesses in their reading skills and resources. The school is located in a middle class neighborhood, but the funding is an issue. Many parents can not provide their children with a set of novels throughout the year along with paying for school fees, lunch, school supplies and other daily necessities. Your support will help provide the beautiful experience of exploring novels cover to cover. Allowing these curious children to explore parts of the world through the words and images created in their minds as we read aloud in class. Aside from the journey, your support will help improve their fluency, reading comprehension as well as confidence. The advantages to literacy are endless and priceless.

My Project

These materials will provide the avenue and pave the way to instill lifelong learning rather than simple memorization. Children will be exposed to an autobiography, Brown Girl Dreaming, that fosters the ideas of home, family, memories and aging. This, in turn, will allow students to see how determination, hard work and perseverance rise above all. Aside from exploring an inspirational non-fiction book, children will be able to experience the joys of learning by means of critical thinking and competitive learning. They will be exposed to Figurative Language in a Jar, Mad Libs, and a Super Sleuth Vocabulary game to enhance needed comprehension skills. This will also foster the skills of healthy, competitive learning. In a world of internet and technology, wouldn't it be nice to simply disconnect and learn through games?
