My students need chapter books to improve literacy.
Do you remember that one chapter book that hooked you into reading more and more? I'd like my students to know that feeling of finding a book they love to challenge them, but I need your help to get those books!
My class has 25 unique and diverse second grade students.
I teach in a school with a program that serves 100% free breakfast and lunch due to the poverty level in the community. Many of my students face obstacles most adults will not face in their lifetimes. Despite these difficulties, my students come to school every day excited and ready to learn. I do everything I can to foster a love of reading and learning during the school day, because most of my students do not have the support at home.
My classroom library gets the quite the work out. Students LOVE to go book shopping in search for the perfect books that are at their levels. My eager readers often come to me asking for "harder books." They love the popular picture books, but they are ready for a challenge! The books I am asking for are high interest chapter books that will challenge my students. Reading chapter books help with their comprehension, vocabulary, reading stamina, and oral language. Students will be able to check these books out throughout the school year and I hope that by introducing these books to students, they will want to read even more books!
Your donation will help me in continuing to create a positive learning and reading environment for my students in my classroom.
Having access to a variety of books in our classroom would create the opportunity for students of all different abilities and interests to find that perfect fit they can dive into at school and home.
