Help me give my students a reading library so they can enjoy reading in the classroom and at home. When you build a classroom library with engaging books, students get excited about reading and they become better readers.
I teach at a Title One School and many of my students come from low-income families. My fourth grade students make me proud to be their teacher. My students are creative, and have such an amazing work ethic that brings me such joy and inspires me to work harder to provide them with the best education possible. My classroom is made up of a diverse group of academic levels, as I teach in an inclusion classroom.
It is my obligation, as a teacher, to provide my students with a meaningful education.
My students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom and I only hope when they are with me, I can provide them all the tools they need to be successful.
Reading is an essential foundational skill that will help each one of my students become successful. The reading levels and needs of my students vary greatly, so I am looking to get these amazing books for my students. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind-I have watched them read titles just like these.
With these new books, my students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own grade level.
Students will also be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading.
