Travel in Time with A Wrinkle in Time

My students need a class set of the classical book, A Wrinkle in Time. The students will be able to explore a new genre, appreciate other gifted people, and look at science while reading this classic.

My Students

Our school serves K-5 students in a rural community just 15 minutes away from a large university. I have 27 fun, caring, loving, and motivated students in my 4th and 5th grade high ability class. All of my students love to learn and experience new things each day. Hands-on activities are a must. My goal is to challenge them each day with different experiences which make them think.

Curious, creative, and craving rich literature best describes the students in my classroom.

Many of them are high ability in math, science, and in reading. They need to be challenged with classical literature, and they need to read books where they can relate to the characters. Students need to read classical literature in order to improve their vocabulary and appreciation for books.

My Project

I would like for each of my students to have a copy of A Wrinkle in Time so that they are able to go on the adventures at the same time with the characters in the book. They will be able to read, comprehend, and discuss the details of this story. The students will enrich their vocabulary by learning new words from the story.

A Wrinkle in Time combines a warm story of family life with science fiction and a most convincing case for nonconformity.

My students will fall in love with the characters and will want to help them succeed. We will also be visiting the local movie theater to see this classic brought to the screen. Upon our return, the students will be able to compare and contrast the book with the movie. It is a Newbury Award winner that needs to be enjoyed for many years!
