Goal

Fill a classroom library with age and level appropriate books for 2nd graders to encourage reading.  

 

What will be done with my students

The objective is to encourage students to want to read. I want all of the students to read consistently one chapter book, without stopping and switching, for one week. I also want to have book talks and class discussions about different books that interest and engage all of the students. Second grade is an important time in students educational life because it sets the pace for student reading and engagement in reading for years to come.  

 

Benefits to my students

The benefits are more for the students than the teacher. My students will benefit by learning how to love reading and books of all kinds. My students will gain knowledge through reading that cannot be gained without books of interest and various genres. Reading is power and this goal of filling our classroom library will assist greatly in giving my students power in knowledge.  

 

Describe the Students

I currently have 17 students. Although my school is a great school a lot of the students come from diverse cultures. I have two ESOL students that speak small amounts of English. I have several students that read on a barely first grade reading level and five that are barely reading on a second grade level.  

 

Budget Narrative

I want to purchase as many books as possible.
