My Students

My students are energetic, fun loving, second graders. I work in a small low to middle-income school in rural Arkansas. My students love to read and enjoy books from all genres and different authors.

I would love to introduce my students to a variety of books from different authors and all genres types.

I would like to have all the books to follow the Rooted in Reading series we have been following that my students have fallen in love with this year.

My Project

Each book on my list goes directly along with our weekly lesson. The books introduce my students to new authors, story elements, genres, and helps grow their vocabulary. Students will learn about a variety of topics from these books.

My students have fallen in love with the Rooted in Reading series and would love to have a copy of each book that they can physically touch and dive deeper into.

Currently, we only have digital copies of the books that are not always accessible to the students.

These books will help foster their love for reading and greatly increase their vocabulary.
