Wanted: Books to Motivate 2nd Graders to Love Reading!

My students need "Hank Zipzer", "Diary of a Wimpy Kid", and "Rainbow Magic Fairy" books to read during guided reading rotations.

My Students

Do you remember what it was like to find a book series that you love to read? My students love reading Hank Zipzer, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and Rainbow Magic Fairy books. Unfortunately, I only have 1 book from each series.

I teach 18 second graders who's reading levels range from kindergarten to sixth grade.

My students are very active but love reading. Many of my students do not have a wide range of books at home so I strive to provide them with all the possible books I can to make reading a personal love of theirs!

My Project

By providing my classroom with these books, students will be able to read daily the books they enjoy. Students are even allowed to sign the books out and take them home to read over the weekend. Many books in our classroom library are serious books but these books I'm requesting are funny which will make reading more fun for my students.

My hope is to catch these second graders now to make them love reading.

Just by having 1 of each of these books in my library, I've realized the students want more. Please help my students be able to have multiple copies of these book series so they won't have to fight over the books.
