Ms. Goris from Kill Devil Hl NC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The More You Read, The More You Know!

My students need picture books to use as mentor texts for integrated lessons! The bookshelf will help the students have access to books with similar themes and skills to reinforce what I will be teaching.

My Students

We live in a transient, beach community. My students are positive, hard working students, who love school! They come in to class each day ready to collaborate with each other using kindness, respect, and cooperation.

These students are inquisitive and excited learners!

My second graders love to read! My hope is that they become life long readers who grow to love reading and make personal connections with the stories they have encountered. I cannot wait to see the amazing people they become!

My Project

Reading books aloud often introduces new texts to students that they might not otherwise pick up.

Mentor texts are an important part of learning in my classroom.

I use these books to integrate science, social studies, and math concepts. I use high interest mentor texts to engage my second graders. These books align with the curriculum and topics that I teach.

I often set out other picture books with similar themes and concepts out for the students to read independently. This reinforces the specific skill that I am teaching, and this allows the students to make text to text connections. I will use the book case to showcase other books with a similar theme and concept. The bookcase will allow the students an organized opportunity to read those books!
