Creating Life Long Readers
My students need a new rug and leveled readers to begin to enhance and encourage Reader's Workshop.
Reading has become a challenge for many young students. Unfortunately, many come from homes where books are not readily available. But, the best way to become a better reader is to read every day.
My school is Bilingual and Title one, with a large English as a Second Language population.
Many students are unfamiliar with the English language or speak no English at all. My classroom is very diverse with children from many different cultures. My students are eager and enthusiastic learners but many have gaps in their reading skills that need to be addressed. It is so important that reading, which is so critical for success in the classroom, becomes a daily routine that the students look forward to.
This is my school's second year of using the Reader's Workshop/Guided Reading program. I would really like to have a cozy, warm, and fun place for the students to gather during this time. The beautiful blue rug, which is speckled with books, that I am requesting will be the final addition to our gathering place and it will make our reading spot the most popular in the room. I have also requested leveled readers for my students. Not all second graders read on the same level. These readers include a variety of fiction and nonfiction books, on levels from G to J. They will take my students on many adventures as they read during Reader's Workshop. It is important for students to read books on their level. Books that they can read fluently and that they can comprehend. By giving my students these reading level appropriate books, I will be able to guide them to become successful readers through out their academic careers.
Books are so very important to second graders.
This is the time in their lives where foundations are being built. Please help me build a sturdy foundation for my students so that they will love to read!
