Ms. Loya from Chaparral NM is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Read It! Share It!

My students need 20 novels of Holes, audio, movie, and the teacher's activity packet. I am confident my students will make a connection with this novel and be ready to take on the world!

My Students

How can we close the achievement gap when students do not have the necessary materials to succeed? I teach at a Title I school in Chaparral, NM. Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with 100% of our students receiving free lunch.

I am a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district.

My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom on a daily basis. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My Project

My students must keep up with the latest literature in education to spark an interest in reading. All of my students want to understand and enjoy what they read. My students want to make the connection right away with a novel and this is one of the ones that will automatically catch their attention.

Struggling readers will often pick up a comic book because the pictures and visuals are less intimidating than a typical book--not my students!

With these new novels, my students will be able to make connections, work on reading speed, comprehension, and learn about literary analysis at the same time! Not only will the students be able to read individually or as a group, but they will also be given the opportunity to read along with the Holes audio. I am also asking for the Holes (full screen edition) video of the novel so they can make a connection from the novel to the video. The Holes Combo LitPlan Teaching unit will help me with many different activities we will be able to do during the time my students are reading the novel.
