My Students

Hello from sunny Florida! My beautiful second graders need your help. They are so eager to learn. Seeing their happy faces makes my heart full. I love coming to work everyday.

Our school is in the heart of a low income area.

Ninety-nine percent of the students are offered free or reduced price breakfast and lunch daily.

This year we are focusing on literacy. I have a wide range of reading levels in my class and need funding for leveled books.

My Project

Scholastic Nonfiction book sets are perfect. They are leveled which makes it easier for me to teach. Each set contains six books. I am in my second full year of teaching and do not have the resources to buy books myself.

They are eager to learn when their curiosity is piqued.

Some students want to be scientists. They will love the planet books. Some love athletics. They will love the sports books and some love history. They will love the biographies.

I can teach small groups of four to six students, depending on their topic of interest. This will keep them engaged while learning. I made a promise to my class that they will all be expert readers by the time our school year ends. I will work hard to keep my promise!
