Every Person in New York

On this Valentine's Day, share the love of reading with NYC students, many of whom attend schools that need more books. Today, we're highlighting four project requests.

Poetry for My Poets My students are poets at heart and providing them books of poetry will help them grow as readers and writers of verse. My students crave poetry—as they see the world through the lens of poets. They feel emotion intensely—and often write poems to channel pain and share the wealth of their happiness. They are excited to begin our poetry unit and can't wait to get their hands on our class set of poetry anthologies. $150 needed>>

Keep 'em Reading! First and second grades are such important years in literacy. My students are so eager to expand their reading and I want to make sure they have proper and updated materials. My students are traveling along their literacy paths- some are at the beginning, some are just starting to develop reading fluency and are moving from easy reader books into early chapter books and some have achieved high levels of fluency. $652 needed>>

Great Books for Amazing Books! I teach an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) NEST, Integrated Co-Teaching, Third Grade class, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, New York. The class is inclusive and has four high functioning children with autism. These children are able to access grade level material with the proper supports. Attaining more books for our library will be extremely beneficial to the learning processes of our students. $763 needed>>

Let's Go on Adventure Books take us on adventures and leave us with many experiences! As third graders, my students are truly coming into their own and discovering a lot about character development. Books have taught them a lot about the world. I chose texts with strong characters. We would use these books as mentor texts for writing, for read alouds and for our classroom library for students to choose for their independent reading bags. $214 needed>>

Jason Polan started Every Person in New York in March of 2008. He plans on working on the project until it is finished. Look for more at Jason's site and his book Every Person in New York.

Happy Valentine's Day
