Mrs. Blynt from New Prt Rchy FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

From Striving to Thriving Readers

Help me give my students a variety of popular book titles and genres to choose from. Giving students the power to choose from a classroom library filled with engaging, high-interest texts will help striving readers become thriving readers!

My Students

I love my second graders at T.E.S! I typically have between 18-20 students in my classroom. They range from striving readers (1-2 years below grade level expectations) to thriving readers (1-2 years above grade level). With such a range of readers with varying interests, it is important to have a variety of genres to engage ALL students (even my least motivated). With a classroom library full of new and exciting books, I know my students will love reading as much as I do!

My Project

"Only 1/3 of children say they have a classroom library that has enough of the types of books they'd like to read." This quote from Scholastic's Facebook page broke my heart and inspired this project. To help find a solution to this problem I read From Striving to Thriving: How to Grow Confident, Capable Readers by Harvey and Ward. Now, more than ever, I am determined to grow my classroom library to help my students fall in love with reading. Harvey and Ward state, "To fall in love with reading forever, all it takes is getting lost in one good book." They also state, "We have the opportunity to change kids lives by putting them on an upward reading spiral. The first step is to trust that through experience with appealing books, through a high volume of pleasurable reading, striving readers will thrive." I am asking for book bins to refresh my classroom library and a variety of popular book titles and genres to hook ALL of my readers!
