We have a new project today, thanks to Eastern Bluebird, who’s been keeping an eye on it. Time is running out and it needs to be finished this week. But it has similar funds, and that is certainly possible, if we can push it in enough to get other donors interested in helping us.
The project will bring an impressive list of books to Alabama’s fifth graders, and the match from Seed to Read: Seed to Read is a partnership between the Kirkpatrick Family, AKJ Education, DonorsChoose and you. The program is designed to place collections of beloved stories and undiscovered favorites in classroom libraries. We want to put books in the hands of students in need to nurture a love of reading and create lifelong learners.

Project description by Ms. Jones: Hello! I currently teach a 5th grade at a Title 1 elementary school in Tuscaloosa, AL. With the start of a new school year, it is important that I restock our classroom library with a new one. We plan to spend a lot of time this school year enjoying quiet reading time with tangible books in our hands.
My goal is to have tons of new, exciting, and diverse books accessible to every child so that every child can enjoy what they’re reading.
Please help replenish our classroom library with some new, varied, and exciting readings for this school year.

Project description by Dr. Morales: My students are lifelong learners and have an incredible amount of energy. They are very curious and enjoy applying math and science to real-world examples. Bots allow them to do this.
Lego Spike Prime robotics kits will allow my students to enhance their STEM knowledge and skills with an authentic example.
Spike Prime robotics groups will also put my students on a path toward college and career readiness. My students will benefit from the engineering design process to document their experience in robotics.
In addition, they will make presentations for our school community. It will be a win for our students and the school community to get these Lego Spike Prime robotics kits.

A brief overview of what’s in the required Spike Prime kit designed for the classroom.
And a quick look at a sample project: This one is a Halloween project and it’s so much fun.
Our first project was completed from last week, with a lot of help from our readers!
project 1, Ninja fied and understand our feelings: Mrs. Williams needed some books for her second grade in North Carolina that would help them learn about emotions and how to manage them.
Although she hasn’t seen the project completion letter yet, she wrote as a single donor note (bold):
Thank you very much for your gift to our class! You are more generous. I know my students will love learning life lessons from ninjas and will get reluctant readers off the reading train! Thanks Daily Kos for highlighting our project! We are so grateful to those who use their platform to help teachers and classrooms in need. We are forever grateful!
Plus, we have a note to share from a project that was last completed late in the week, Build vocabulary one word at a time: Ms. Jarrow needed materials for middle school students in North Carolina, to help them develop their vocabulary and grammar skills..
she writes: I would like to thank you for making this dream come true. I look forward to helping my scholars grow their vocabulary and your donation has helped make this possible.
Without donors like you, our chapter would have fewer resources to use. Your help means the world to us.
