My students need a classroom library where they can explore new places and have a way to escape from reality.
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. I can best describe my students as leaders. We are a leader-in-me school which means along with academics we teach our students to become leaders in and out of the classroom.
My students come from hard lives and I want to be able to give them the opportunity to better themselves and have the materials in order to do that.
They come to school every morning despite if their stomachs are full or if they got a good night's sleep. Each student walks into our classroom with a smile on their face ready to work hard and better themselves. We are our own family and as a family I want them to see that they are all treated equal and each of them have the same opportunities in our classroom because they do not have that outside of school. My goal for these kids is to be successful and have the same advantages as other students.
Having a diverse classroom library is essential for my students to have the chance to get lost in them and explore new places. The books that I found give my students the opportunity to escape from reality. I am asking for a variety of fiction and non-fiction book sets including the Grade 5 Classic Grade Level Library book set, Step Into Reading: Nonfiction Set, the thirty book Goosebumps boxed set, and the eleven Diary of a Wimpy Kid Books. I a also requesting a set of 30 book bins and 30-slot mailbox to organize our books.
Being a Title One school and a new teacher, building the classroom library is expensive and the students suffer from the lack of funding.
Our students love to read and are very motivated to read new books. They can be given the chance to learn about new things and about people they have never heard about by reading the ten What Was...? books and the twenty-four Who Was? Nonfiction set.
Giving my students the chance to experience the love for reading and being able to find just right books not only in the school library but our classroom library is a goal for me as a new teacher.
