Mrs. Smith from Hyattsville MD is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Novel Study

My students need the book Because of Winn Dixie to complete a novel study on the book.

  • $165 goal

This project expired on May 1, 2014.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are very eager to read. They are English Language Learners and reading helps them connect their language to the English language.

My students are 5th grade students.

They are all English Language Learners. Every student in my class loves to learn and loves to read. The more they read, the more they can connect their language to the English language. They are very eager to read and learn.

My Project

My students will use the book "Because of Winn Dixie" in a novel study in small groups. The novel study will help with every aspect of the Common Core Reading Standards. Students will work together to complete activities as they read the book. When they finish the book, they will complete a final project on the book.

This project will make a a huge difference in our classroom.

Having the students complete a novel study on "Because of Winn Dixie" will help them with every Common Core Standard in Reading. This will enable them to learn what is required for fifth grade while having fun doing it.
