My Students

This year I am so lucky to have so many amazing second graders! I teach in a public school in Florida. All of my students are positive, kind, responsible, and hard-working. They deserve the world. They are a diverse bunch that includes students with learning disabilities and those that are academically gifted. Inclusion is our love language.

Given the different levels of performance, and the lack of educational funding, I am looking for the kindness and generosity of others to help me give my students the individualized, hands-on, and developmentally appropriate education they deserve (all while keeping it fun).

My Project

I am requesting hands-on reading centers to help my students reinforce reading skills. These are fun and engaging. The students will be excited to learn each day. I am requesting different levels of resources to meet all of the individual needs of students in my class in an age appropriate manner. These centers will assist me in not only increasing my students reading skills, but also their love for reading and confidence.

Donations to this project will give my students the confidence to become independent readers while motivating them to practice skills that are individualized to their specific needs.

The students will use these while I work with small groups of readers during guided reading. They will love the fun and engaging centers that address their needs and/or enrich their advanced abilities.
