My Students

My second grade students are inquisitive, eager and very motivated to become better readers. We just launched the Teacher's College Reading and Writing Program at my school this school year. My students are taking ownership of their reading and writing in the classroom. They are starting to utilize and develop the strategies and skills that I am teaching them to become successful readers and writers. I would like to get the Teacher's College Reading and Writing Project Classroom Library, Grade 2 from Heinemann for my classroom. The books in this library will help to support and challenge my student's in their reading.

My students are so excited come into school everyday because they can't wait for the next reading or writing lesson.

Each lesson supports the previous one but also introduces them to something new and invaluable.

My students are learning new reading strategies early on and ways to develop their writing at such a critical time in their lives. They are falling in love with reading, by building and connecting to the characters that we are reading about in our literacy block. Unfortunately, I do not have enough books in my classroom to support their love of reading.

My Project

My project is all about getting series books for my students for the classroom. My students will be able to follow the progression of a main character throughout a series of books in this literacy. Cam Jamsen is one is their favorites so far. I want to introduce them to more characters and books.

We are studying book series characters in our literacy program but do not have enough resources to assist my students.

My students love to read but it breaks my heart that can’t supply them everything that need. That is why I am asking for your help.
