My students need bookcases for a reading area which isn't collapsing! My classroom bookshelves have completely been destroyed over the past two years. My students love to read, but my cheap bookshelves have not survived.
Our students come from diverse backgrounds spanning from multiple languages spoken at home, diverse economic levels, and various stages of learning. We are blessed to have a great community of parents and support staff who want to see our students thrive. We are a Title One, ESOL, and SPED site for our booming school district. We are the largest elementary school in our district. Our building serves as a gateway to creating the best educational experience for our students in an ever changing world and society.
Presently, there are over 1,000 books in my classroom for students to read, relax, and escape into a world of wonder. I love my readers, but my bookshelves have been loved even more. Presently they are held together by duct tape and have collapsed more than once this year during parent-teacher conferences and again during class instruction. These shelves and the area rug will allow me to rearrange my classroom space to create a safe, quiet, and home-like setting for my students.
Many of my students come from low-income homes or have multiple languages at home.
Having a safe, relaxing, and creative area for my readers is my goal as a reading specialist and ESOL teacher. Not all of my students have environments which are comfortable or have been in a setting where learning to read is celebrated and you don't have to worry about your teacher's shelves collapsing on you.
