Mrs. Cayer from Norwood MA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Make History Come to Life!

Help me give my students the books they need for their biography projects. This is a major project which culminates in a Living Wax Museum where the children dress up as their person and present what they learned.

My Students

I love my students because they are hardworking and kind to each other. They come to school prepared to work hard. They work well in cooperative groups. The students enjoy learning in various ways whether it be with books, technology, or math manipulatives.

My students are special because they come from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Five languages are represented.

Six of my students are English Language Learners. Six other students have Language Based Learning Disabilities. Despite all these challenges they give their best effort on a continued basis. They are a fun loving group that are eager to learn!

My Project

Many of my students cannot afford to buy books of their own and our school library has a limited supply. It is also difficult for some of the students to access the public library. These books will enable the students to each have their own copy to use for the duration of the project.

These biographies will allow students to easily access the information they need to complete a two month research project.

These books are engaging and match the students' current reading levels. They will have the opportunity to read, take notes, create a timeline, and develop their presentation with these biographies.
