I want to encourage students to put down their phones and pick up a book. Sadly, the library at my new school is severely out of date and we are responsible for creating a diverse classroom library. My school does not have a lot of funds available to spend and I have been trying to find appealing novels for self-selected reading for my 9th grade English class. I firmly believe that students are in desperate need to spend time with an actual book in hand. We will start the year out discussing different types of literature and then they will have to choose a novel to read on their own. While technology is a fabulous thing, it also has its drawbacks. Many students find reading a book to be boring. I believe that every student can find something they love to read; we just have to find the right book for each individual. You will notice that books are not the only things on my list. I can provide a lot of necessities out of my own pocket, but I do have a limit on what I can spend. The school does not supply us with a printer in each room. There is only one printer available on campus to us teachers. It will be hectic trying to ask students to save and share an assignment with me. Then, I will have to run to the workroom leaving my students unattended while I print papers to be highlighted and revised. Having my own printer will make things much easier. The other things, such as cleaners and wipes, are easy for me to purchase as needed throughout the year. However, we are not provided with Kleenex! That is probably the one thing most used at any school.
