Help me give my students an opportunity to be ready for their Quick Recall matches so they are exposed to new literature like Number the Stars by Lois Lowry.
Our students live in an urban area that is very diverse. The majority of the students are from an extremely low socioeconomic background. The students range from high performing to extremely far behind their grade level. Lastly, we are now part of a program that invites refugees to our school and creates a diverse family of students. I want my class to have all of the experiences that every child deserves. Most of the students in our class have no concept of life outside our city. Most of the students have not left the city. A large number of students come to school without supplies, full stomachs, or a stable home environment. With this being said, the students are eager to learn and eager to make their lives meaningful. They see, with encouragement, that they can be what they choose. With hard work and a good attitude, these kids can be successful, if given the opportunity.
I am from a Title I school that provides free lunch for the entire student body.
Quick Recall is a team of four students that listens to questions read by a moderator and tries to beat the clock, and the opposing team, with a correct response. These questions consist of tossup and bonus questions. Semple gets a team together every year. Each year, there is a book study. This is a way our students are exposed to rich literature.
As a Quick Recall team, our school is in need of the book Number the Stars by Lois Lowry.
This book is a great read and a wonderful opportunity for our students to learn about a historic part of time. This is a historical fiction book and our students all need a copy. With your donation, all of our students will be able to have their own copy of Number the Stars and will then be able to read and be prepared for our academic competitions. This will expose them to new reading!
