Mrs. Frank from San Ramon CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Leveled Books for Classroom Library

My students need books for our class library at their increasing reading levels. New book series, like Bad Kitty, A to Z Mysteries, Nancy Drew, Encyclopedia Brown, and biographies will increase their knowledge and interest!

My Students

I teach 26 dynamic second graders in a small, Title I public school in Northern California. My students come from diverse cultural backgrounds and family situations, yet we come together as a class. My students each have their own learning struggles and strengths, yet each child's individual needs must be met in our second grade classroom.

Each student learns differently, yet each child has to master first grade Common Core standards.

As their teacher, I must find different ways to help each child meet those standards.

My Project

My students are getting stronger as readers and need new books that meet their ever increasing reading levels!

New series of chapter books will introduce second graders to different book genres and series that will peak their interest and make them want to read more and more!

My students need new series of chapter books, such as A to Z Mysteries and Puppy Place. They need to investigate mysteries like Nancy Drew and Encyclopedia Brown. They will fall in love with Bad Kitty's silly antics. Second graders will learn about famous Americans and American landmarks as they read Who Was/What Was books? There will be so many choices!

There is nothing better than new books to excite learners, and my second graders want and need new classroom library reading choices!
