Teaching second grade in a small community outside of San Jose has been such a joy this year. The community I teach in is low-income but it is full of hope. This year my students have made a lot of progress. In fact, many of my second graders are reading at the third grade level. Although my classroom library is fairly large, most of the books are at a second grade reading level. As a result, it is becoming increasingly difficult to send home and read books in class with my students at their reading level. It is so important that my students love to read. It is so hard when the books are not available at home. It is even more difficult to see some of the students unable to find books they love to read in the classroom. Obtaining these high interest books that will challenge my students\' reading levels will be a wonderful addition to our class library. It will push my students to reach new reading levels. I encourage my students to set big goals. As we progress toward the end of the year I want to continue to encourage them to set big goals. Reading these books will provide me and my students with that opportunity.
