Growing Readers

My students need chapter books and nonfiction books for our classroom library!

My Students

My second grade students are growing as readers more and more each day! Each student has a reading goal and reading fluency goal that they work to meet each quarter. While my students have an amazing school library, our classroom library is in need of some help!

I want my students' love for reading to grow!

To do this, I would like more books for our classroom library that would interest my students. With third grade quickly approaching for them, I want them to be prepared by reading a wider variety of nonfiction books and chapter books.

My Project

I would love to build our classroom library. I specifically chose books centered on cultural differences as well as growth mindsets. I believe learning to have a growth mindset and learning about cultural differences is so important in today's society.

I believe these books will help my students grow not only as readers, but also as individuals.

Some of the books I chose such as What Do You Do With A Problem? focuses on overcoming challenges. Many of my students are also more interested in nonfiction books, therefore I chose some biographies and nonfiction animal books they would be interested in. I believe these new books will make my students excited to continue reading!
