Diverse Summer Reading
My students need a variety of diverse and multicultural books about wonders of America, famous Americans and other childhood classic books.
Everyone looks forward to summer break! I look forward to reading for pleasure because I never have time during the school year. I want my students to have the same opportunity but they need books to read over the summer!
I teach 1st grade at an AMAZING public school in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina.
I love the enthusiasm my students have towards learning. It is their enthusiasm that encourages me to look for ways to enhance my teaching and find great, innovative materials to make learning fun. Their love of learning is what drives me to give them the best because that is what they deserve!
Can you imagine leaving school to start summer break with a bag full of brand new books? That is my goal with this project. I would like to send my students home for the summer with a variety of books on their individual reading levels.
I am requesting some non-fiction books, multicultural books about Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr. and other famous Americans. I am also requesting books about the Wonders of America like Mount Rushmore and The Grand Canyon along with other high interest books like Henry and Mudge and Cam Jansen. These books are on various reading levels so each student will get a bag suited for him/her. As students read these books over the summer, they will continue to grow as readers which will help them when they enter 2nd grade in August. Ideally, they will maintain or even increase their reading ability by having these high interest books readily available.
All these requested books will help my students continue reading over the summer break because they will have quality literature at their fingertips.
I know they will be able to maintain their current reading level at the beginning of the 2nd grade. Your donation could make a difference in one child's life. Isn't it worth it?
