2nd Graders Love to Read!

The cost of 7 books libraries of different literature genres is $262, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I teach a wonderful second grade class in a Title One School in the Bronx. My students are very enthusiastic to learn. They especially love to read. Every week I give them the opportunity to pick books from our library to read for the week. Most of the books we have in our classroom library are non-fiction books which of course are wonderful, however, I want my students to explore many different types of genre throughout the school year. I find that my library lacks the different types of literature a typical classroom library usually includes. I am asking for a variety of different kinds of books to include in my library so that my students can continue exploring the different types of literature there is. My students can use these books to write book reports and read during independent reading time. These books will be used daily by all the children. Thank you for your time and consideration.
