Engaging Parents... One Book At A Time!

My students need interesting books to help them increase their reading comprehension skills and fluency at home.

My Students

A typical day in my classroom is centered around reading. I teach a class of 25 AMAZING scholars! My students are very bright and have the potential to do amazing things in and out of the classroom.

I teach a wonderful 2nd Grade class at a Title 1 school where 100% of the students qualify for free breakfast and lunch.

My students love to read! They enjoy going to the school library to pick books that interest them. Unfortunately, we are only scheduled to go to the library once a week. This is not frequent enough to give my students the high interest literature that they crave. My students especially enjoy spending time with their families and completing projects at home.

My Project

My students love to read! Their favorite part of the week is when they have an opportunity to visit the school library. Unfortunately, this only happens once a week. I would love for my students to have interesting books for them to read at home. Often my students come to school without the basic supplies. Many times they don't have books to read at home. We all know that the only way to improve reading skills is to practice. I want my students to be able to pick books that they want to read. My students are all on different reading levels and have different interests. A variety of books is important to the students in my classroom. We also need storing tubs/bins. I would like to have the leveled library organized so that the students can easily find a book of high interest on their reading level.

With your donations, my students will be reading books that they love!

Most importantly, they will be taking these books home to share with their families.

My goal is for my students to find a love for reading. With the help of this leveled library, my students will find books that make them want to read more and more! I want my class library to be full of books that entice them.
