Guided Reading Is The Road to Success

Help me give my students by giving them bins they can use so they can easily access books on their reading levels. The chart paper is used as visual aids posted around the room.

My Students

Hello! I am a second grade teacher. For a lot of my students, my classroom is the only place where they experience structure. My twenty-five students are wonderful children who come to school every day to learn. My school is 98% African-American, with most students receiving free lunch through the school district's free lunch program. My school is located in a large inner-city, with most of my students coming from households in or near poverty.

I have a wonderful group of students who are full of energy.

They express their energy with their eagerness to learn. They all strive to be the best they can each and every day. They are the best thing between heaven and earth!

My Project

When it is time for our Daily Five, my students choose books on their reading level and read to themselves or their buddy. These bins will allow me to organize their books into levels, so they are easier to access.

My students love to read!

Help bring my classroom alive by providing chart paper so my students can use them as visual aids. My room becomes so rich with literature, but it can't be done without these chart papers

Pencils are needed for success! Some students can't afford pencils, and all students should be able to succeed free of charge!
