My Students

I am starting the 2018-2019 school year in a second grade classroom! I am very excited to be working with students at this grade level.

I will have a classroom filled with diverse learners, and I want to make sure that all students have materials that will allow them to get excited about reading, learning and help them share their thoughts and ideas with others.

I will have students who will come to school with a variety of experiences and backgrounds. Having a diverse group of students always makes the classroom more interesting and exciting.

My Project

My students will use the different variety of magazines during independent reading time. Students can read to self or partner read and have discussions with each other to share information they have read about. My students will use these high interest magazines to practice reading strategies, comprehension and as a way to learn to be a better writer. They will be able to read about current events and how they connect to students' daily lives.

The donation will improve my classroom by exposing my students to a variety of high interest topics using magazines written just for kids!

They will gain an additional love of reading because they will be using magazines that will have new and exciting content for them to learn about.
