Mrs. Doan from Toccoa GA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We want to become Nonfiction Text Feature Surgeons!

My students need Scholastic News Magazine and "surgical" supplies to become Nonfiction Text Features Surgeons. Together, we will perform "surgery" on text features and learn to classify each feature and then explain or "diagnose" their uses.

My Students

Our school is in its third year as a reorganized first and second grades only school. It's so much fun to have so many little ones in one building! The students also bring tons of energy with them every time they walk into the building.

My students are extremely eager to learn and are begging for opportunities to express themselves and to be appreciated for that expression.They come with a desire to be included and loved, and that's what I strive to do in my classroom!

My Project

Nonfiction texts are so important to all learners, but especially 2nd graders. My students are being introduced and exposed to the world through these texts. Scholastic News is a fantastic magazine about current events that presents these real-life scenarios in a way that 2nd graders can understand. What a unique way to learn about our world!

Your contribution will allow us to "surgically" dig-in to nonfiction while learning the importance of text features.

We will become surgeons, who wear surgical gowns, hair covers, and masks, that seek to understand both the content and the parts of nonfiction texts. We appreciate all of the support we will be given for this project!
