I teach 2nd grade in a high-poverty school where more then 80% of the students get free and/or reduced lunch. I want my students to develop and apply their reading skills to understand and appreciate progressively more complex texts. I want to show them that reading can be fun and that it will open many doors for them in the future.

I want my students to be able to read books that are at their reading level and then be able carry on a conversation with their peers about what they have read. I do not have the book sets necessary to teach this way. We only have the basal reader and it is not at many of my students' level. These book sets will allow my students to see reading in a whole new way that will open their eyes to the wonderful world of reading.

I will need 18 sets of 6 books that are at varying levels. These book sets will allow me to teach reading to my students in a way that will increase their reading levels and reading abilities.

Your help will make it possible for my students to become the best readers they can be.
