Ms. Sutherland from Richardson TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

First Year in 2nd Grade!

My students need to begin the school year with books to encourage their love for reading!

  • $364 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I am extremely excited for August to arrive so that I can finally meet my 2nd graders. I know that my students will enter our classroom ready to learn and grow! I am looking forward to discovering their interests and accommodating their specific needs throughout the school year.

Second grade is an important year for student to start becoming independent readers.

Some explains of the books are "Judy B. Jones", "Magic Tree House", "Second Grade Here I Come" and "Second Grade Holdout". I know that my students are going to benefit from having a wide variety of new books in our classroom!

My Project

As a first year teacher, I am just now beginning to create my classroom library. It is important that my 2nd graders have different kinds of books to choose from in order to get excited about reading! Starting the school year with a classroom library is extremely important. I will use these books to provide opportunities for my students to read independently or to enjoy reading with a partner. I will also use these books for read alouds during story time.

My goal is to give my 2nd graders enough books from different areas of interest to help them develop a love for reading.

Thanks in advance!
