My students do not have printed books or texts at home. We do not have a school library, and the public library is too far for most sixth graders to walk to safely after school. The school supplies books for children to read in school, but they can’t take them home at night. Research clearly shows how reading at home for even 15 minutes at night can exponentially increase a child’s vocabulary and build their background knowledge. We assign 15 minutes of reading each night for this reason; but we do not provide texts for them to take home. The responsibility to create a classroom lending library is placed entirely on the teacher’s shoulders. Please help me provide a classroom lending library so kids can read their hearts out in class AND at home in their community. I want to catch kids reading everywhere and celebrate it!
