All I Want for Christmas Is a New Bookshelf

My students need a safe book shelf that is not falling apart to store our classroom differentiated literature.

My Students

My students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom. To combat the many challenges they face, I am hoping to keep learning authentic and provide my students with both creative and meaningful learning experiences. The moment they walk into my room, I want them to feel invited and loved.

All of my students have the desire to learn and my goal is to help them achieve excellence in learning.

I am a teacher who strives to ensure that all students are provided with a rigorous and personalized education that will prepare them to be life-long learners and contributing members in a global society.

My Project

My students deserve a bookshelf that is safe and sturdy. I buy my classroom bookshelves myself and always get them on sale during the week the college students are coming to our town. However, these bookshelves that I purchase just do not withstand the daily wear and tear of an active learning environment. They are literally falling apart.

All I want for Christmas is a new bookshelf!

We use our bookshelves daily to hold materials for individual, cooperative group, small group, and whole group instruction and learning. My students have math manipulatives on one bookshelf, on another we have differentiated take home books, and our final bookshelf consists of a fully stocked AR leveled bookshelf for all the reading ranges in my classroom that I have purchased books for over the years.
