My Students

As a first-year teacher, I am super excited to meet my first class of second graders! I am looking forward to a fun-filled year of learning, sharing, and caring. Having recently visited my assigned classroom, I realize that I have my work cut out for me. There is not a single book in my classroom...it's completely empty! I am up for the challenge because when my little ones walk in the door, I want them to be as excited to be there as I will be to have them with me for the year.

My students deserve an inviting and comfortable space filled with a variety of genres, reading levels, and topics of interest to develop their love of reading.

With your help, we can do this!

Thank you for your consideration.

My Project

As a first-year teacher, I need help with providing my second grade students with a comfy reading corner that will encourage a life-long love of reading. My classroom is practically empty and without a single book. This means I will need financial support in excess of what I will be able to invest personally.

All students need and deserve a comfortable print-rich environment that is conducive to promoting an increase in student engagement and academic achievement.

I will be investing in comfy furniture, books bins, plush reading buddies, and a variety of leveled books to pique my students' interests. Students will be visiting the reading area daily for independent reading time and to peruse and select titles to take home for additional practice.

With your help and a matching donation from Lakeshore Learning, I will be able to reach my goal of providing this opportunity for my first class of second graders (and many future classes). Thank you for your consideration.
