Ms. Weaver from Salt Lake City UT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Social Studies and Language Arts, Anyone?

My students need Native American novels to get access to the Social Studies curriculum. The Sign of the Beaver has a Newberry Award, is at the perfect Lexile level, and I can share with other teachers.

My Students

We fourth graders come to our Title One school from diverse cultures. Many of us are English learners. All of us are rock stars. We do more than equip ourselves with the tools to succeed; we become the tools of success. We fearlessly explore learning because we know that grit triumphs over initial failures. We teach each other through dance and song. We are a community that cares for one another. We open our minds and our hearts to new ideas and points of view because our world is our teacher. Help us become great readers, mathematicians, scientists, and social activists. We are already making earth a better place to be.

My Project

The Sign of the Beaver has the Newberry Award, is at the perfect Lexile level, and gives 4th graders access to the Social Studies curriculum. I don't have class sets of novels for my students, and I'd love to increase their access to both language arts and social studies. Every former student remembers the impact of the read-aloud, and I'd love to add this book to my own students' experience. It highlights conflict resolution for community building as well. The best part about this donation is that you would be giving to every 4th grader at our school because I can share the set with every teacher throughout the year! It really would be the gift that keeps on giving.
