Ms. Keegan from Burgaw NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

With Choices, the Limit is Endless

My students need "Who Was" books in order to integrate science and social studies into our literacy block. They will be able to explore the lives of important figures and create meaningful memorable projects.

My Students

This will be my third year teaching 4th grade in Pender County and fifth year teaching in North Carolina. I am lucky enough to teach energetic, personality filled, fantastic kids. They all have their strengths; they all bring something different to our classroom. And let me tell you, they can all make you smile.

All of my students have the positive attitudes and determination to succeed but may lack the resources necessary to do so.

With support, love, and consistency, these children can achieve the impossible. I cannot wait to see how much they grow as students and people throughout this year!

My Project

Our class needs individual copies of the "Who Was" book series. Students will have the opportunity to explore the lives of many historical figures that influenced their lives today such as Jane Goodall, Jesse Owens, Isaac Newton and Rosa Parks.

Students will have the choice, yes the choice, to choose someone who interests them and read their biography.

Many times children are assigned tasks without a choice therefore their full potential is not shown. With a diverse class of students it is important to offer them diverse opportunities to learn.

Once students choose their biography they will actively read the book and guess what? There won't be a test at the end of it! Students will be able to choose how they would like to share their learning with their classmates. Some students may excel with technology and want to create a power point, others may enjoy public speaking and want to dress up as their character and recite a speech where some students may have strengths in writing and use the information gathered to create a report.

It would mean so much to me and my upcoming fourth graders if we could start off our school year strong with some choices to show strengths.
