My students need 17 mentor texts to be used as models for their writing and inspiration for high level comprehension.
The local public library has been a great resource but so often the text I want is unavailable or can't get to me in time. This teacher needs to build a collection of great mentor texts for reading and writing instruction! Help me inspire my students!
My lovely 3rd graders have the privilege of speaking two languages and experiencing two cultures...along with cold Minnesota winters!
Our charter school does amazing work to build partnerships with their families and the community and students feel this support through donations of time and money. Students give back through quarterly service projects such as park cleanup, thank you cards to local community helpers, shoe collections for the homeless, and meal packing for the hungry. These students have made great gains in math and were recently recognized in Minnesota for their high standardized test scores. We hope to see this same achievement in reading with help from donor's like you!
Imagine young writers being inspired by the talents of great children's authors like Cynthia Rylant, Donald Crews, and Chris Van Allsburg. Imagine struggling readers feeling successful at reading because the pictures speak "a thousand words" to them. Imagine proficient readers hungry to find more of Jon Scieszka's Caldecott winning books.
The books received through this project will touch not only the students of the 2013-2014 school year, but numerous future classes of students.
These books will be read and touched by hundreds of young students.
