I am a second grade teacher at a neighborhood charter school in Oklahoma City. Our school has 330 wonderful students in pre-K through fifth grade. Even though 90% of our students are below the poverty line, they are resilient and determined to learn every day!
My students are passionately curious.
Second grade is such a special age; these students are asking questions about the world and searching for answers. I hope to encourage this curiosity and create a classroom full of life-long learners.
My students are highly interested in nonfiction topics, especially animals. My students have such a zest and curiosity for learning. We need nonfiction read alouds so every student, no matter the reading level has access to information. We also need headphones and organizational bins to keep our space neat.
I want to make learning about topics that interest my students as accessible as possible for my students.
My students have shown interest in researching animals and have already began to explore and present information to their peers. Having these materials will engage students who are already interested in nonfiction and give the children who struggle to read the support they need.
