My Students

I am a second grade teacher in Pennsylvania. My classroom is made up of 30 eager second graders. I also have a wide range of reading and math abilities in my classroom. I am the teacher with the ESL friendly classroom. This is my second year having the ESL classroom, and I would like to accommodate more students that speak different languages.

My reading levels range from pre-kindergarten to fifth grade.

It's important that I read with these children every day in order to get them on grade level by the end of the year. All my students get free or reduced-price lunch, and all these children love coming to school.

My Project

Our school has a reading program called 100 Book Challenge. Students read books at their level and earn points by passing book tests. This is a good program to promote reading skills. The reading incentives I have requested will help reluctant readers work harder towards achieving their goals. By the end of the year all children should have 500 + books read. That is quite an accomplishment. I am also requesting classroom chairs, so the students have somewhere comfortable to sit and place anywhere in the classroom they would like.

I am requesting reading incentives and chairs to give to our students to help them become lovers of reading which I believe leads to a love of learning.

The incentives in the treasure chests will help the children want to strive to earn rewards. The incentives will help them develop pride in their accomplishments. All students can benefit, not just the students who are academically stronger. Your support will help my second grade classroom continue to love reading. Thank you for taking time to read our project.
