My Students

2nd grade students in my class are making the transition from learning to read to reading to learn! They are fascinated by the adventures that lie before them. They do not let the barriers of their individual lives hold them back from the goals and success they deserve. We begin this process together, right here in 2nd grade.

Students know that knowledge is their choice, and I will give them every opportunity to learn.

In our small rural community, school pride is strong.

My Project

My students need these books for their Unit 1 Reading Program. Please consider helping my students reach their full potential as readers! Donating to this project will not only allow my students a better opportunity to learn and practice reading and comprehension skills, but will also allow them the opportunity to learn from outstanding mentor texts. Students will be able to use these books to learn and practice all the comprehension and fluency strategies as well as build a lifelong love for reading by being introduced to a variety of exemplar books!

Using these books for Unit 1 Reading skills enables children to cooperate in teamwork activities, while analyzing good writing and practicing good reading, which enhances their critical thinking skills.

My 2nd graders need these books to be able to complete their curriculum. These books will supply them the resources they need for success. Please consider helping my students to be more successful in 2nd grade!
