Fairy Tales in 2nd Grade...Make Every Kid's Wish Come True!

My Students

My goal is to create a classroom of life long learners and dreamers. Students in my classroom start and end everyday with a book that intrigues them and leaves them wanting more.

Students in my classroom are eager to learn and love reading!

A large amount of students that attend my school come from low socioeconomic families. These families have worked hard to instill values and worth ethic in their children. However, they lack reading materials and home and many do not have experiences outside of their neighborhoods. They are diverse learners who want to learn about the world around them.

My Project

As part of the curriculum students in the 2nd grade are required to learn about fairy tales from diverse cultures. It is important to me not only to teach them about different cultures, and characteristics of a fairy tale, but show them that dreams can come true. With the help of these fairy tales and fractured fairy tales my students will become interested and use their imaginations to become a life long dreamer and reader. My students will use these books to spark their imaginations to create their own fairy tales on paper and in their own lives.

Your donation will help these young students to become life long readers.

No matter what challenges they face in life they will always have their dreams to hold on to. Cinderella said, "Have faith in your dreams and someday your rainbow will come smiling through." I wish this for every student and thank you for helping their dreams come true!
