My students need more books to keep them engaged in reading.
My Montessori students learn by using hands-on materials in our classroom. They do well when they have concrete materials to manipulate and explore. This type of learning creates an intrinsic motivation necessary to excel and get excited about education.
One of the setbacks of being a small Montessori school is the lack of money available to purchase new materials essential for my students' exploration and learning.
My students come from a variety of backgrounds and show great dedication and commitment to our school. We are a small K-8 Montessori charter school with around 200 students, yet we have a lot of heart.
Our classroom library has become one of my students' favorite spots to find a book to curl up with. They partake in quiet reading twice a day and are responsible for reading at least one book every month from a different genre. Giving them plenty of books to choose from is important to me because I want to keep them motivated and excited about reading. Books open up new worlds to the reader and take them places some would never go; not to mention the many educational benefits that come with reading regularly. Books are truly a treasure in our classroom.
