Reading is FUNdamental

My students need 30 canvas bags to hold individualized books.

My Students

Reading can be a fun learning experience if you have the "right fit book". My second grade class has been working on their reading skills and their individualized books need a place to go. Canvas bags would be the perfect solution to house each child's books.

My students are a wonderful group of kids, eager to learn, and willing to try their absolute best.

Most of my students do not have the privilege of owning books outside of school and so their reading skills may not be the best. I hope to strengthen their love for books by providing them with individualized bags to house books that are specifically chosen for them.

My Project

By obtaining canvas bags for my classroom, I will be able to provide my second graders with a place to put their specific reading leveled books. When choosing books, most young students do not understand choosing the appropriate book based on reading level. If a student reads a book to easy for them or to hard they may lose interest, which can lower their reading self esteem. I want to provide my students the opportunity to go "shopping" in my library for fun and level appropriate books. This will give the students the opportunity to learn about their reading level as well as giving them the independence to choose their own books, allowing reading to become more fun.

Donations to this project will make such a difference in my students' lives.

A simple canvas bag for each student will provide them with the ability to learn responsibility, independence, and a true LOVE for reading.
