Mrs. Johnson from Dawsonville GA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books for Second Graders

My students need books for our classroom library. Second grade is a big year for students to read things that interest them and gain independence and confidence in their reading abilities.

My Students

In the 2018-2019 school year, I’ll be teaching second grade. I am in need of building a second grade classroom library for my readers. I would like to incorporate books of varying levels and interests for my sweet kiddos.

My students will enjoy learning through reading about books that interest them.

This will encourage them, inspire them, and ignite a fire in their hearts for reading. This will encourage them to be passionate for reading, too. I am so excited to see how these books will make my students' imaginations soar!

My Project

This project will provide my students with a plethora of books of various levels, interests, and topics for our in class library. Students will be able to take these home and read them within our classroom. The book series that I have asked for are all leveled between 1st and 3rd grade to help in differentiating in reading abilities.

Books can ignite passion and imagination in the souls of students.

I can't wait to see their faces as we reflect on the books read in our classroom library. I'd love to create a reading community within my classroom. I am excited to see where this project can go. I know my students will grow and learn through reading these books together and creating a reading community.
