I am a second grade teacher at P.S. 169, a title one school in Sunset Park Brooklyn. Second grade is an amazing time for children as readers. Children begin to truly appreciate what a gift the ability to read is and the value of books. I would like a set of guided reading books. These books would provide my students with a selection of books at both their instructional and independent level. They are frustrated with the difficult books available at the stores and libraries. I believe these books would be "just right" books and allow the children freedom of selection, multiple copies to facilitate book talk, and the opportunity to take reading into their homes. Reading is an amazing gift and I believe with a few just right books you would be giving my students the gift of reading. Thank you for your consideration.
