Mrs. Larson from Manhattan KS is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

2nd grade Reading Extravaganza!

My students need subscriptions to Scholastic News and books to have more access to reading materials that they can bring to and from school to encourage language development and to strengthen reading skills.

My Students

My students are in their first year of learning and being in school formally. They are young, fun, energetic beings who love to wiggle and move. We are constantly moving to make learning more engaging and fun. My students are from a variety of backgrounds as I am an ESOL teacher. They are very curious about each other's background and love to learn more about each other's lives.

My students are outgoing and are developing a love of learning.

In order to develop that love, they need to be given the opportunity to manipulate their environment and continue to be hands-on learners.

My school is a suburban school that is growing fast, and my students will be entering into a larger group of students than they have ever been in. Combine that with our state's cuts to public education, and we are pulling what resources we have to enable the best learning environment possible.

My Project

Having the Cam Jansen, Magic Tree House, and A-Z chapter book sets in my classroom library will allow my ESOL and beginning readers as well as my advanced readers the chance to grab a book and read any time during the day, and always find something at their level.

I have a lot of books for my beginning and emerging readers from previous years, but having access to the Scholastic News magazine will allow me to get print in the hands of my non-English speaking families each week at home to continue with the learning process.

This alone will be invaluable as the school year progresses and reading gets harder for them. Having a text at their level will help us make the continual growth by applying our daily skills at home.
