The books I chose will expand the reach of our classroom library so that every student in our class can feel like a successful reader this year. These books are easier readers than our normal second grade classroom level, but they still touch on our second grade themes of community and learning about the world around us. I also chose a TeachersPayTeachers gift card to purchase sight word games and decodable texts to send home to provide more reading opportunities for my students. These books, games, and home decodable texts will be part of the students' daily independent reading time, center time, and homework; and will give them valuable practice to launch them into becoming successful readers. Since beginning readers' books are usually short, students need many different exposures to sight words and need a wide variety of books to practice reading.
