My Students

I teach an energetic class of second grade students in California who come from diverse linguistic, socioeconomic, and cultural backgrounds. Students in my classroom come from homes where nine different languages are spoken. Many of these students immigrated to the United States, and many were born here.

They love to learn and specifically love learning through reading nonfiction books.

These students are always raising their hands and pushing me as a teacher to teach them more. It doesn't matter the classroom subject, they are always wanting to learn more.

My Project

These nonfiction books will help advance my students’ reading levels and increase their knowledge of the world. Students in second grade need to be able to read both fiction and nonfiction books. My students need help in building our nonfiction classroom library. These books will give students the opportunity to learn about new topics while practicing their nonfiction reading skills. Some of these reading skills include identifying the main topic of a paragraph or section, using text features to identify facts, comparing and contrasting nonfiction book ideas, and finding examples in the text that support the author’s points. The books will give students the opportunity to practice these important reading skills.
