Eagle River classroom nomination


Thank you for the opportunity to receive additional funds for our classroom. Our classroom consists of both 3rd and 4th grade students. Due to the extreme variety of learner levels , many reading resources must be present in order for all students to participate. Also, I believe in a blended curriculum where science, social studies, language arts and reading focus around a major concept. This allows for a connectedness. For example, when studying the continent of Africa, culture, people, animals, deserts, plants, etc. are all studied at the same time. Also, I like to use books that have characters or settings based in the area we are studying. We are able to read these stories and relate them to our unit of study. We can make comparisons between these areas and our own. However due to budget cuts, as you well know, purchasing books, for a wide range of readers, is difficult. This is where the additional $300 would great benefit current and future students. I would be able to purchase books and materials to help all of the students, no matter what their skill level. This will allow all students to be successful.
