Ms. Garrett from Orange TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need dictionaries to use on the state mandated STAAR test and the Scrabble games will be utilized to help them increase their vocabularies and proficiency when using the dictionaries.
My students come from a rural area near the Texas/Louisiana border that was hard hit by Hurricane Harvey. They not only lost their school to the floodwaters, but their homes as well. Many of them are still living in homes that have not yet been repaired, and we are attending school in an unfinished building in our district. In an upcoming move, we will be in portable classrooms until our campus can be repaired.
Despite all of this, they come to school eager to learn.
The smiles on their faces each day and their ability to adjust to the many changes we've endured amazes me. They are always up for my challenges and rise to my expectations. My desire is to provide them with everything possible to ensure that they get an outstanding education.
I have created this project to replace the class set of dictionaries that was ruined when our classroom flooded during Hurricane Harvey. Recently, students who will be taking the 5th Grade STAAR Reading test in April were given the opportunity to use dictionaries when taking the test. This provides a level of assistance for optimum success. However, my students don't have dictionaries.
Games are one of the best tools to increase student engagement.
Scrabble is a game that students will be able to play to increase their vocabulary. They will be able to practice using the dictionaries to help them increase their scores when playing.
