Books, Boxes, and Sets, Oh My!

My Students

Imagine for a room full of students reading to themselves. The crisp sound of turning pages, whispers from around the room as they jump into their books and explore the worlds inside, sprawled out in comfortable reading positions - each one deep in their reading. A group of students is with the teacher, studying a famous author that they are curious about. Now imagine that most of these students don't have books at home or people to read with them and this reading time is all they get in a day. Due to this, unstable home lives, learning disabilities and lack of resources, some are beginning to get discouraged. Some can barely read a sentence. Others grab Diary of a Wimpy Kid books to read "cool" books that they see others reading even though they can barely read a page. These students need books that are exciting, interesting at levels they can read independently with ease or study in a small group of other curious, but disheartened readers.

My students yearn for the chance to read books at their level, to reverse the beginnings of resentment towards reading and they need your help.

My Project

Included in this project are three sets of books that will allow my students authentic reading opportunities with exciting, engaging books. Books by Mo Willems are so exciting to my second graders and will allow my most struggling readers "cool" books at both their interest and reading level. Reading both Frog and Toad as well as Henry and Mudge will allow both my at grade level and highly capable readers to read about relatable characters in familiar settings to enhance their learning. I plan to use these books to allow my students to make connections to their reading, identify main ideas, and re-create events using video and audio software. Additionally, my students are currently using fragile magazine boxes to keep track of the precious few books they can read independently. Many are breaking and students are losing track of their books. If using the book boxes selected for this project, students would have a safe, stable place to keep their books safe and protected for their use and other students who will come after them. It will also allow them to store their reading group assignments and projects so that they are easily accessible.

Your generous donation to our project will improve our second-grade class by building stronger and more confident readers.
