My Project

Fostering a love of reading early in students opens the door to endless adventures and opportunities for them. Not only does it expand their vocabulary, build independence, and develop self-confidence, but it also helps children learn to make sense of the world around them, learn about new things, and grow their imagination. Reading is the key that unlocks the door to lifelong learning, and my 2nd graders are eager to dive into new books and adventures!

I'm hoping to update my classroom library with new high-interest books that help to foster my students' love of reading!

Our classroom library is in need of a variety of new and updated books that will keep students motivated to read. Please help me give my students these new books to allow them to thrive in developing their literacy skills!
