Mrs. Meeks from Live Oak FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students tangible books INSTEAD of electronic devices! Thank you.
My students truly are like my own children. They are my life. In our classroom, we work work as a team and we are a family. Whether it's during the week or on the weekend, they are always on my mind!
My students are so loving, and they want to see each other succeed.
I teach language arts, and we have class discussions on a daily basis. I love that my kids (students) can participate in amazing class discussions and respect each other's viewpoints. If you met my students, they would melt your heart! You would love them instantly. Sure, some try to act like cool middle school kids, but they all truly have hearts of pure gold. They are so very special to me and I am blessed to be their teacher. We live in a very small town, and when they see me in public, it's a little mini reunion. So sweet!
Let's face it. Our world has become tech-savvy in almost every way. Technology is EVERYWHERE...Especially in classrooms. Sometimes, it's almost overwhelming. It is great when you decide to take a break from technology and read a book. Doesn't it feel AMAZING to turn the crisp pages?
I want to instill that LOVE of reading those "old school" books.
A real book...one with pages (not a touch screen). The ones where the page makes that slight flutter sound when it's being turned. The books are waiting. Let's do this thing! If we were blessed to receive funding, my students and I would be so appreciative. Everything in this world has become high-stress, and reading is a way to let one's mind unwind. I feel that by having individual books, students will enjoy the novel study much more. Thank you so much!
