My students need a variety of books to fill their classroom library for the school year.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are active second graders who come from a variety of different cultural and economic backgrounds. They enter my classroom on different levels, but despite these differences, my students love to learn together with hands-on activities and innovative strategies. Our classroom is a busy place with students learning. As a teacher, my goal is to provide my students with an environment where all of them can achieve despite their differences. They always surprise me with how much they love to learn despite the many challenges they may face academically or at home.
Do you remember the excitement each day when you were given the opportunity to pull out a book, get comfortable, and read? Our students get that same opportunity each and every day during reading workshop. However, our classroom libraries need your support. We need a variety of texts that cover different genres, levels, and topics for our students. Every day during reading workshop the students are taught a mini-lesson as a whole group. Then they are given plenty of time to engage independently in reading a variety of texts while the teacher conferences one-on-one or with small groups.
Having a variety of texts to read during reading workshop is imperative to helping our students grow as readers and writers.
The texts requested within this project were handpicked to meet the needs of the students within our classroom, their levels, and their interests. With your support, our students will have a variety of books to choose from on a daily basis to meet their needs as they grow as readers.
