I have a classroom full of growing, curious 2nd graders. My students love to read and love to learn! They are finding out who they are, what they are good at, and what their interests are. They are active and love to share their knowledge!
This is the stage in life that my students are transitioning from learning how to read, into little people who are excited to read in order to learn.
I love encouraging kids to explore a large variety of topics, hobbies, and interests to find out for themselves what they enjoy as they become more independent. I think books are a fantastic way to set this process in motion!
The Scholastic books I have chosen will be used in the classroom to reach every single child. I will be able to read aloud to the students as a whole group, use in small groups for discussion and to reach more individual needs, and for silent reading time. This permits students to choose the books that most interest them so they can practice reading strategies they've been taught.
These books will allow the students to have a wide range of topics and interests to read about so that all individual tastes and reading levels will be met.
I specifically chose books that can be used in all areas of our curriculum and subject matter.
Many of my students do not have access to books at home, and I allow them to take anything home from my classroom library. They are so excited to share each new book with their family and return it the next day. Many of the books in our classroom library are very old and worn and need to be replaced. I also love using books as gifts and prizes to promote excitement for reading!
