Practice Makes Perfect......(Take Home Reading Book Bags)

My students need a class set of Take Home Reading bags and non-fiction beginning reader books.

My Students

Thank you for supporting Mrs. Schreck's 2nd grade classroom. I have an amazing bunch of motivated English Language Learners this year. My students have been working so hard to improve their English. They love learning and reading books.

My students' excitement toward learning is contagious!

They come to school eager to learn and practice new skills. I love, love, love being their teacher. I want each student to feel like our classroom is a safe, happy place. It is my hope to instill the lifelong love of learning in each child. Each day, we work toward the goal of becoming proficient English Learners. It is my pleasure to watch them grow and improve each day. My Title 1 school services families from a very low socioeconomic neighborhood. The teachers and staff at my school are very supportive and understanding of the needs of our population. Together we celebrate the growth of each and every student.

My Project

Reading at home is very important in order to give students time to practice skills taught each day. Unfortunately, my students do not come from homes that have reading materials. Therefore, I always send home books in a plastic bag each night for additional practice. The kids really get excited about getting new bags with different books to take home. My current supply of leveled books are only fiction and have started to get worn and decrease in number over the years.

The donation of 59 non-fiction books, new book bags, and a book bag rack for organization will allow my students the opportunity to practice reading books from a genre other than fiction each night.

Non-fiction books are very motivating to my young readers. Motivated, happy students are better learners.
