Hi! I'm a teacher in San Jose, California. I will have a class of 20 eager and enthusiastic second graders during the 2006-2007 school year.
My number one goal (and challenge) is that every students leaves my classroom as a proficient reader. One way to achieve that goal is to bring literacy into every avenue of the curriculum. By providing reading opportunities throughout the day, students have a better chance of becoming successful readers.
My proposal is to create a math literature library. There are so many amazing and fun-to-read books with math themes! I plan to integrate the books into my math lessons. They will be especially helpful when introducing new concepts. I also plan on having the books available for my students during Silent Sustained Reading and for home check out.
My students and I would greatly appreciate your donation to this projects. If this proposal is fully funded my class will have close to 50 math themed books.
Thanks for taking the time to read my proposal. I can't wait to see my students curled up on a bean bag reading "Subtraction Action" or "One Hundred Hungry Ants"!
