Book Box Blowout!

My students need 5 sturdy book boxes that will stand up to their daily use during our literacy work.

My Students

Hurrying into your house after a quick stop at the grocery store, as you are stepping into the house, it happens, the bag rips and "splat" there go all your treasured goodies. That's what happens to my students when their cardboard book boxes succumb and their books drop like those eggs, "splat".

I work at a school wide Title 1 school, meaning that many of the students come from low income households.

Our school has made a change in our reading instruction to better meet the needs of our students. Each student learns how to pick Good-Fit books at their reading level. They are free to pick books they are interested in, which builds their intrinsic motivation to read. I have 23 students that range in reading abilities from beginning 1st grade to 4th grade level. Even with this wide range, each student is eager to select Good-fit books to keep in their personal book box until they are done reading or working with it. My students love to learn new things and love being at school.

My Project

Book boxes are an essential element of our classroom. Each student uses their book box more than half of the school day. As you can imagine, over time, the cardboard magazine holders break down and books start splattering across the floor on a regular basis. The book bins will help students transport their treasure of books around the room to the comfy spot they have chosen to work. Without having the weight of books splitting the book box wide open, my students will spend less time scooping up spilled treasures and more time digging into the pages of mystery, wonder and amazement awaiting them. New book boxes will also allow me to get back to work with students as I will be spending less time taping worn out boxes.

So often we hear, "It's the little things that matter." This is so true for my students.

Not only will it meet an immediate need but it will be an opportunity for students to learn about taking pride in and caring for our materials.
