A Good Fit for Non-Fiction

Help me give my students this small shelf to hold the overflow of our non-fiction leveled reading books.

My Students

My students are enthusiastic young urban children. They are new to reading, but eager to learn how to improve their reading abilities.

They learn best through hands-on active learning.

They are social and enjoy interacting with each other during their learning processes.

They learn fastest when activities are presented with an engagement component, whether it be as a small group game, partner work, or a group share out at the end.

They consume learning and need to constantly have new opportunities to continue growing as learners.

My Project

After 20 years of teaching using furniture I purchased mostly from Craigslist, one of my goals this year has been re-organizing our classroom environment. I underestimated the amount of non-fiction leveled readers we have, compared to a beautiful new shelf intended to hold all of our non-fiction.

This shelf is a small version of the other non-fiction shelf and will hold the remaining books perfectly.

I have found that if all books are not displayed or available in the same manner, some students internalize this to mean the lower level books are undesirable or only the higher books are special. If both shelves match, it will provide equity in how my students view the books regardless of their individual levels.
