Marvelous Mentor Texts!

My students need great mentor books to help teach math, reading and writing concepts.

My Students

Do you remember what it was like to be captivated by a good book? My students love a good book! Please help me to build a library of great books.

I have an amazing group of second grade students.

My students moved from first to second grade with me this year. Some of my students come from families that can help them and read with them often, but others have no help at all besides what they get at school. ALL of my students love reading; especially when I read aloud to them.

My Project

With the implementation of common core, comes the freedom to use incredible books to teach reading, writing and math. Teachers have been given back the right to choose books that meet their needs; as opposed to a boring set of books that a publisher picked for them. I am asking for books that are recommended by the creators of common core to teach my second grade students. These books will cover a variety of subjects and skills.

By donating to this project, you are allowing my students and I access to books that will forever impact their lives.

Please help me to prepare my children to be life long readers.
