My students need books at their reading level that are going to interest them. New chapter books like Katie Woo, My Weird School, Geronimo Stilton and The Neverland Girls will help them to love reading.
I'm so excited to start next school year. I am going to teach 2nd grade for the first time in my teaching career. Over the years I have taught in the upper elementary grades and this will be my first time with younger students.
I can't wait to work with this group of energetic and eager-to-learn second graders.
I am team-teaching reading and writing. My partner and I will share the students and she will teach math/science. This will be a little challenging in the beginning for students at such a young age to switch classes but, we will make it work! We will set a warm, inviting environment for them.
These books will really help expand my classroom library. I have been teaching in the upper elementary grades for the last five years and this will be my first time going down to second grade. I want books that my students can read and series that can help hook them.
Being able to walk into a new classroom and finding a book that he or she would love to read is what I want for my new class.
It is really important at this level to understand story elements. The best way is to stick to a series to get to learn the characters throughout each book. These books will really help my students in their journey to love to read.
