Books Galore!

My students need several books to improve literacy and a corner carpet.

My Students

I am in need of books that capture my students imagination. Several of them are unfamiliar with traditional fairy and folk tales.

I have 18 very bright students that have a hunger for knowledge.

They are full of energy and imagination. Our school is a myriad of cultures and backgrounds from all over the world. We lack the additional funds to enrich our students learning. I want to expose my students to a variety of books that they have never seen or read before.

My Project

My students will have access to different genre's of books that they will use for reading responses, weekly book reflections, and for partner talk. They will learn about the different types of traditional literature by reading books from the list I have composed. I also wanted to add a rug with the different literature genre's to my reading center so as my students are reading, they can look at their environment and have visual reminders about the different types of literature that exist.

By having these different books on hand at all times in the classroom, it will give my students the opportunity to read from a variety of genres and it will enrich their knowledge.
