Statewide Reach for Local Impact

FIND IT FUND IT FLORIDA

My goal is to instill a love of reading into my students through series that are age appropriate yet interesting. In second grade, reading longer books play a critical role in children’s literacy. As each chapter progresses, the characters are changing and the story deepens. My hope is for my students to keep thinking about the story in-between readings. My goal is to have a classroom library that not only fosters but encourages this skill.

Goal

My goal is to instill a love of reading into my students through series that are age appropriate yet interesting. In second grade, reading longer books play a critical role in children’s literacy. As each chapter progresses, the characters are changing and the story deepens. My hope is for my students to keep thinking about the story in-between readings. My goal is to have a classroom library that not only fosters but encourages this skill.  

 

What will be done with my students

Instilling a love and appreciation for reading will help guide my students through their educational journey and hopefully encourage them to become lifelong learners. Series motivate young readers and help them build positive experiences with books. By the middle of the year, many of my second graders are ready to read chapter books with a substantial storyline. This library would serve as a great resource for them especially for the students who are reading well-above grade level.  

 

Benefits to my students

Analyzing characters, reflecting on situations, making connections across literature, and just being completely in love with reading are critical skills that my students need to develop. One of the series that I requested is Horrible Harry, "with a focus on school experiences, this series is particularly relevant to young readers who are developing their own identities and independence in a school setting."
