My Students

My co-teacher and I work with an active group of technology loving second graders. We use computers, laptops, and tablets a great deal throughout the day. Our school recently became STEM certified and we are VERY proud of that.

They come from a variety of backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses, however they are still kids who love to learn.

We are trying very hard to expand our classroom libraries with texts that the children will love to read. Getting a quality book into the hands of student is the perfect way to get them student motivated to read.

My Project

My students absolutely love to read, well almost all of them love to read. The books in our classroom have become outdated, well-used, and .... loved (to put it nicely).

This project will reinvigorate our classroom library and the student's excitement to read.

Falling in love with books is about making a life long connection with characters and the author of that book. Please help me give the chance for a new generation of students to fall in love with a new generation of characters and authors.

These will be used for not just this class of second graders, but future generations. The student's will be able to engage in meaningful silent reading and also hopefully chose to read during their free time.
