Mrs. Walter from Carnation WA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books That Inspire, Encourage and Energize Young Readers!

My students need books that inspire curiosity, encourage social and emotional growth and provide a wide range of diverse experiences and perspectives.

My Students

The second-graders coming into my classroom in the fall are readers, writers, scientists and mathematicians. They are wonderers and questioners and they are discoverers. They are learning what the world around them looks like and the stories that are held within it. Second-grade students in this class are ready to start an adventure when they open a book.

They are excited to grow and learn as part of the community, both in and out of the classroom.

These students are ready to jump into their education and build their skills across curricula to deepen their connections to the lessons and their world.

My Project

These books were chosen to inspire the students across the different curricula. There are books like "The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes" to encourage a growth mindset and books like "Say Hello" to promote social and emotional skills. There are books like "Equal Shmequal" that mathematize literature and provide cross-disciplinary opportunities. There are also books like "The Name Jar" to provide the classroom with diverse voices and perspectives.

These books will encourage students to engage with their world in a variety of ways.

Growing a classroom library is vitally important and these books will be available both there and used for read alouds with class as well.
