I teach in an inner-city elementary school. My twenty-six students come from low-income families. They enter each year with quite a range of skills and life experiences. They face challenges both in and outside of the classroom.
My third grade students work hard and want to learn the skills necessary to become successful citizens of the community.
They are full of life and ready to learn! It's my job to provide them with meaningful learning experiences on a daily basis.
Our classroom has recently received quite a few new leveled books for our classroom library. Some came from former Donor Choose projects, others were donated by friends/family, and some came from a grant. The quest now is how to store them. I want my students to have easy access to text that is at their appropriate reading level.
The baskets will be a great way to store books that are all at the same level.
I can label the baskets with appropriate level tags and children will have no problem getting their hands on a book they can read. The shelving unit will be a great way to then house all the baskets. What's even better is the shelving unit is on wheels - a moving library!
