Mrs. Cruzan from Choctaw OK is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Twist Into A Good Book!

My students need their own copy of the novel, Night of the Twisters. Novels are a huge part of our curriculum and sharing novels doesn't allow the students to connect with them as well.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are amongst the brightest and sharpest in the country. They are diverse. They are competing with ever changing technology. Acquiring daily access to technology and more supplies can change their limiting opportunities to limitless.

Our class sizes are ever growing, and supplies are limited.

As a reading instructor, I use novel sets as often as I can. These novels allow me to explore different genres and teach a wide variety of skills at one time. I love helping to restore the love of reading to students!

My Project

Novels are one of the main pieces of our curriculum in my classroom. We use them to focus on the many skills that are taught.

Connecting with literature is a valuable concept.

In order to do so, students need their own copies of each novel. This particular novel study will go along perfectly with science lessons that include weather and social studies lessons that include the southwest region.

Please consider donating to this important project. My students beg for more novels to be ready and this one is perfect! I know they would be extremely excited to read this one!
