Ms. W. from Stone Mountain GA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books Galore

My students need a class set of engaging and fun chapter books. They truly enjoy the books written by Ann Cameron and would love to continue reading the books that she has written.

My Students

As the second grade collaboration teacher in a low-income school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Several of my students have IEPs for learning disabilities or emotional/behavioral disorders. Despite the many challenges my students are faced with, I am looking to make this school year a successful one for them. My goal is to provide my students with meaningful and memorable learning experiences. I hope to help my students learn to look a challenge in the eye and give it a wink.

My Project

These materials will be helpful and useful in my classroom because this year, majority of my students started the school year reading bellow their grade level. Most lacked the foundation skills needed for 2nd grade and they struggled to enjoy reading because it is such a challenge to many of them. This school year, I have worked hard to instill the joy of reading to them. When I introduced our first chapter book, The Stories Julian Tells, the students were beyond excited to read this book.

Charles William Elliot said, “Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” Many of my students have parents who worked 2-3 jobs which limits their opportunities to be able to read with daily to improve their lexiles scores.

By giving them access to this book study program, I would be able to improve their fluency, comprehension, decoding abilities, vocabulary and most of all their confidence. Developing confidence in their reading abilities would help encourage them to be self lead readers and lifelong learners.
