Mrs. McCrevan from Benton Harbor MI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading Is Fundamental - Let No Student Go Without It!

My students need new copies of the classic book, 'Sign Of The Beaver' as our existing copies, 8 years old now, are in taters and unusable.

My Students

My school is a charter school . Most of our students come from low-income families, and work hard to be successful students. Many of them come to school without adequate supplies every day. We have many wonderful, very intelligent students, who would benefit from new materials (specifically chapter books) that we read during the year, that are literally falling apart from the seams, with pages missing, etc. Our students are avid readers and deserve the best.

My Project

In preparation for moving into junior high, students need to have the ability to read and understand. This book brings real life stories into context for my students and allows them to increase their comprehension and reading skills.

Having their own real copy of The Sign of The Beaver to read and enjoy and discuss is an integral part of advancing their comprehension skills.

Without these books, shared copies generally allow for students to disconnect, so 'their' copy makes a difference.

When my students are given this opportunity, they embrace it as a whole. The story can be very real in their lives, and the characters are much like them. It is a marvelous teaching tool.
