I teach a group of hard-working, inquisitive second graders in rural North Carolina. Our school is considered a high poverty school and most of my students are ELL learners, but those things do not define us!
In our class, we enjoy discovering new books, solving challenging problems, and letting our voices be heard!
My goals for my students include academic goals, but also character goals. I tell my students daily "be amazing, be kind!" It is important that I instill in my students the desire to learn and also the desire to make the world a better place by spreading kindness.
School starts in a few weeks and my students need some resources to help us get started! We need a few basic supplies such as markers and a clock, and we would also love to have some awesome new books for our class library!
The books that I have chosen for my students are a high demand series that my second graders love!
These series make reading chapter books attainable for struggling readers! When students fall in love with a series, they will read endlessly and talk with each other about the books! The message they receive is that reading can be FUN! Ricky Ricotta is a graphic novel series about a super hero mouse from Squeakyville and his Mighty Robot! The Owl Diaries series is about owls who go to school together and have problems my students can relate to!
Another essential item on our wish list is an analog clock! Telling time to five minutes is a second grade skill and, currently, we only have access to a digital clock! Having an analog clock in our classroom will help to reinforce our time telling skills!
