My Students

Our students at our school are from rural NC and have a variety of learning styles. Several of our students have a military background and may have parents that are deployed. A large portion of our students are English Language Learners. This means that English is their second language. Several only hear English spoken at school. Our school qualifies for free breakfast and lunch. Although our students may not always have the things needed when they enter our doors, we try to provide the items that will make learning fun!

My Project

These books I am requesting go along with a wonderful literacy unit I discovered called Rooted in Reading. It chooses a read aloud each week of the year to focus on, and includes wonderful lesson plans to integrate literacy skills, writing, reading, vocabulary, spelling, art activities, and much more. All of the activities are based around the book of the week. My class has tested this out using books from the local library and they love it. It would be so nice to own the books and have them in my classroom library to use year after year. These lessons I'm trying to implement are fun, creative, engaging plans, that meet all our state standards and prepare my class for standardized testing. It is a great addition, and goes along nicely, with our school reading series.

Putting these books in the hands of my second graders will allow them to grow as readers and assist them in becoming successful students!

With these new books, I can show my students that there are so many worlds that come to life when you open up a book.
