Help me give my students the chance to fall in love with books!
Roald Dahl said, "I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn’t be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage.” As the years have flown by, so have the many books that lived on my library shelves. My library is in desperate need of some new life and the best way to do that is with excellent books! The students I teach are from many different backgrounds, mostly with a hard story to tell. Please help me give them a book that will be a doorway to the future!
Oscar Wilde's quote, "It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it," really hits what I would like to accomplish. Providing children with many different books and giving them choice, empowers them to be strong thinkers and confident human beings.
Our students struggle with reading a great deal mostly in part to not reading enough.
If we provide strong literature, rich with vocabulary and meaning, we will create an environment for children to thrive in reading.
The other piece is that it shows children that they have a choice when they read. It becomes about finding what speaks to them as readers and embracing it. They may even find a new friend that has the same appetite for reading as they do.
