My students are eager, excited, active learners. They come to school ready to dive into whatever the day has to offer.
Reading is, as always, a top priority in my classroom.
My students need a full, rich library of both fiction and nonfiction books to pique their interest and underscore the joy of reading for each and every one of them.
Our TK-8 school is located in the fertile central valley of California, surrounded by farmland and dairies. Many of my students are bilingual and are still cementing their English skills. They are eager to excel and willing to work very hard to do so.
The more one reads, the better one reads, especially if they have excellent, well-written, high-interest books to chose from.
We need a classroom library overflowing with excellent books, both fiction and nonfiction!
Picture a reading area with a bookshelf packed with reading choices, both fiction and nonfiction. Picture a front-facing display shelf where the children can set books they have especially enjoyed. Picture a wall above the display shelf posted with book reviews written by the children themselves.
Now picture a small table and several comfy stools where the children can sit and discuss the books they have been reading.
