Reading to Succeed 2.0

My students need new books so we can take our learning to new places. Headphones will help us listen to online books and engage in book studies.

My Students

My students are always excited and ready to learn! They are enthusiastic and unique in their own way. My students enjoy reading and hands on projects! They are always hungry for exciting new adventures in reading and I want to feed their knowledge as much as possible.

These students have big dreams for the future!

About 70% of my students come from low income families, and I see some of the financial struggles that my students and their families face daily. I want to ignite their love of reading and offer them books to be able to enjoy.

My Project

As a new 2nd grade teacher my goal is to foster a love for reading in each of my students. Freckle Juice will be one of many novel studies we complete this year.

We all know that readers are more successful in school and in life, and I want to do all I can to create lifelong readers!

These materials will make a difference in my students' learning for several reasons. Many of my students are reading below grade level. Listening to the audio of a story or article is a great way to improve students reading ability. This will allow them to listen to the pronunciation of unknown words as they follow along. This is why having headphones would be so beneficial!
