My Students

My 2nd grade students are all very bright. They love coming to school each day and are ready to learn. They also enjoy reading books written by Dr. Seuss. I know they would love to have a classroom library filled with books written by Dr. Seuss. I think more of my students would really enjoy reading time if we had more Dr. Seuss books to read. Right now, I just have a few Dr. Seuss books in my classroom. If I had more Dr. Seuss books in my classroom, more kids would be able to read them.

My Project

My students love to read books written by Dr Seuss! We have a few books written by Dr. Seuss in our classroom. I just know that if we had more books in our classroom library, more kids would want to pick up a book and read.

Dr. Seuss is my students' favorite author.

I know if we had more books written by Dr. Seuss, even more kids would be able to read. I also love books written by Dr. Seuss. I remember being a child and laughing out loud as I read books written by Dr. Seuss. I want to give my students the same love of books that I had as a child.
