My Students

Our students come from a once-thriving, coal-mining community that has been devastated by the loss of income and industry. With over 82% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunches, these children are in great need of a high-quality education. Education and shared resources will be their ticket out of poverty.

Most of my students do not have access to high-quality reading materials at home.

Many of them depend on our school to meet their needs. With such a small enrollment, there is very little funding for sets of books for a whole class to do a book study.

My Project

Each of my students need an individual copy of the book in order to highlight specific evidence used by the author to show the emotions of Edward such as fear, loneliness, hope, love, sadness, excitement and happiness. Students will learn about the parts of speech by searching for adjectives and circling them. They will underline verbs and draw a squiggly line under adverbs. New vocabulary words will be highlighted in blue. Students will use details from the story to describe the character traits of the rabbit doll and his owners. My students will expand their vocabulary by studying new words and using them in their own sentences. Students will make real-world connections with the character by comparing them to people in their real life.
