My Students

Do you remember the first book or series that you just couldn’t put down? I work with the most AMAZING group of second graders, and as their teacher I am making it my personal mission to help them develop a love of reading! I want to make books come alive for them!

As a class, students made a goal to read 375 chapter books by the end of second grade, and I want to have many chapter books available to them for their broad range of interests.

I want to provide them every opportunity to feel the success of reaching their goal!

My Project

Having a variety of chapter books at my students' disposal will help to foster a LOVE for reading. It is important for students to have choices in their reading. I researched the best books for my growing readers to dive into, and I chose a variety of genres and topics to reach all interest and reading levels.

Helping students find that one book or series that they can identify with is crucial in establishing a love for reading.

I am looking forward to seeing their excitement when deciding what book to dive into first! The first week of school, my second graders made it a goal to read 375 chapter books by the end of this school year. In order to meet this goal, it is important they have the books they need to make this happen!
