My Students

Our second-grade community is home to 30 active and ambitious learners! We take pride in knowing that we all come from various backgrounds and all learn in different ways. Literacy is the cornerstone of most of our instruction and we work hard to foster a love of reading in all of our students by giving them access to daily read-alouds and providing them with independent reading time using "just right' books.

Set in a high poverty urban area, our classroom provides an escape for our students to engage in fun, exciting learning experiences.

My co-teacher and I have worked hard to set up a classroom that fosters a love of learning among all of our students. Our classroom environment helps them feel safe and excited to learn more and work hard to achieve their individual goals as learners and develop meaningful relationships.

My Project

Our classroom hosts a large library, full of exciting new books for our students. Weekly, our readers get to shop in our classroom library for 10 books and get a teachers choice book too! These are their books for the week and they are used during both classroom reading time and for homework activities. With these 30 book baggies, we'll be able to help our students be responsible for the books that they love.

We will learn a lot this year about community and respect regarding our school, classmates, and classroom supplies.

These pouches will be better suited for the volume of books that our students bring home each week!
