I teach at a Title I school in eastern NC where all of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Many of our students live in housing projects and low income housing and don't have the resources they need to be successful. (Books to read at home is one small example).
Many of our students live in poverty and school is the only place where they fulfill their social, emotional, and academic needs.
This means that a lot more money comes out-of-pocket or we go without things that would make our classroom a better place to learn.
Please help give my students 25 copies of Sadako and the Paper Cranes. This book will help teach my students empathy as a little girl suffers from leukemia due to the bombing of Hiroshima. It will also teach about history and the Japanese culture. We will also learn about how our decisions always have consequences and how that can affect people on a larger scale. I look forward to sharing this story with my students and see what they can learn about hope, perseverance, consequences, love and inspiration through this emotional story of a little girl and how she inspired a nation.
