I am an eighth grade English teacher with 58 students. I am at a small rural school with a very small library. My students read for about 10 to 15 minutes each day from books that they have chosen. I am in desperate need of more reading materials for them. The selection in our library is small and popular titles are checked out quickly. Some of my students are very poor readers and it takes them longer than 2 weeks to read a book. I would love to have more books for my classroom that students could read during class time and at home. More choices for my students will lead to more reading for them. If students read more, their vocabulary and comprehension will increase. The students will do better in all classes and on state tests. This is a total win-win situation.
