I teach second grade in Brooklyn, New York. About ninety-five percent of the students receive free lunch, and many are English Language Learners. We follow the workshop format to teach reading in our school. This means that students spend the majority of their time reading books that are just right for them. This provides valuable learning opportunities for student to develop their reading abilities. Students look forward to this time because it is a time that they get to sit down and enjoy reading a book. They also enjoy this time because they get choice over which books they want to read. However, this independent reading time also require supplies so that students can make the most out of this time. I am requesting funding to purchase a wide variety of books that are leveled. These books are well suited for children learning how to read. They are carefully chosen based on the amount of help the picture provides, the predictability of the text, as well as the difficulty of the text. This will allow my students to find books that they will be successful reading and thoroughly enjoy. This addition to our library would greatly expand the choices students have in choosing their books. I am confident that it would generate excitement that would carry my students along in their journey to becoming life-long readers. I truly appreciate your time and consideration of this proposal. Thank You!
