Mr. K. from Corona NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Thank You, May I Have Another.....Worm!!!

My students need 30 copies of "How To Eat Fried Worms". I need teacher guides to enhance their learning and the DVD How To Eat Fried Worms as a companion activity of the book.

Underprivileged and no money. That's what my students are. They are the most excited 4th grade students. They want to learn and I want to teach them. They deserve to have some new tools to learn with.

Learning should be fun. That way students do not even realize they are learning. My students need to be exposed to a higher level way of thinking. Taking a serious subject like reading and turning it into a fun, relaxing activity is an awesome way to teach and learn. Teaching in NYC has one major downfall. Lack of money. Ideas blossom all around me from inside my students heads. They come up with these great ideas like this one and I try my best to make it reality. We need a class set of the book "How To Eat Fried Worms".

We need a class set of 30 books of "How to Eat Fried Worms". This would allow every one of the students to read along while I or someone else is reading. It does not have to be a grueling activity. They can follow along and pick up on whichever words then recognize while at the same time enjoying a great funny book. I also asked for teacher guides to help me enhance the learning with other activities and the DVD to show at the end of the unit.

Please help us get our "fried worms". We must know all the secrets and add some of our own. Can you really eat worms in all those gross ways? We must find out.
