Read to Succeed
Donate to our Class!
We are less than $200 away from our goal!
Donors Choose is an awesome website that allows teachers to post projects that will benefit their students. In the past, I have posted projects for 30 Kindles (which we will be using next semester to read The Outsiders), books for our classroom library, basic supplies, and much more! The teacher gets to pick the items and people from all over the country fund the project. It is a really cool way for students to see that complete strangers are willing to help out when it comes to the education they receive. Please consider donating to my latest project:
**Give to my classroom by 11/12 and your donation will be doubled thanks to DonorsChoose.org. Just enter the code SPARK on the payment page and you'll be matched dollar for dollar (up to $100).
If you chip in to help my students, you'll get awesome photos and our heartfelt thanks.
Quarter 2 Novel
Periods 2-5 are reading The Cay (should have completed through chapter 7 by Friday afternoon)
Period 6 is reading Seedfolks (should have completed through chapter 3 by Friday afternoon)
If students miss a day of in class reading, they will need to make it up at home. The Cay can be found by clicking here. I will send a copy of Seedfolks in my next weekly email. I request that students not get ahead in their reading, as it can be confusing when answering discussion questions in class and on quizzes.
