Bring Magic to Our Reading

My students need to become life long readers. Magic Tree House books allow students to really enjoy the "Book Series" unit by being engaging & learning about history.

My Students

My classroom is filled with curious students from diverse cultural backgrounds. Although all of my students are of various learning abilities they are all filled with eagerness to learn. My students are genuinely interested in learning about different subjects. It so rewarding to see their eyes light up as they are able to share a new fact that they have learned and later applied.

Many of my students are bilingual and often return home to a second language with families who do not speak English.

However, despite all their challenges they remain engaged and excited about school.

My Project

In second grade students get to experience the magical world of series books as they become readers of chapter books. The Magic Tree House series is a wonderful series filled with adventures and history. Since I only have five books in the series it is always so sad seeing students come to the end of the fifth book wanting to read more but not being able to. This collection will bring much excitement to my students as they embark on a journey with Jack and Annie.

I believe that allowing students to read books that they love will get them to remain engaged readers for years to come.
