Bookshelf: More Space for More Opportunities to Learn!

My students need a book center, for storage for our expanding classroom library!

My Students

So many great books and not enough space! I am constantly buying more books to keep up with my ravenous readers, but have run out of shelf space to display them!

My students are an amazing group of 2nd and 3rd graders that attend an urban public school in Washington.

They are bright, creative, and energetic. My students love school (especially reading) and are eager to learn new things every day. There are five languages spoken in my classroom and over 75% of my students receive free lunch. Since many families do not have the means to provide students with the extra support they need, I try my best to provide those things myself.

My Project

Over the years I have purchased (and received from DonorsChoose) hundreds of different kinds of books to appeal to the many different reading interests of my students, in hopes of instilling a love for reading in each child that I serve. However, I now have more books than book cases and have run out of space to display the books. As I get more books, I store them on my teacher shelves (too high for students to reach) and try to change books out throughout the year, but they are often sitting unused because they are not accessible. With another bookshelf, I would be able to put all of my books out, so that they are available to students all of the time.

This project is beneficial because it is critical that my students become fluent readers and, even better, find a love for reading while doing so.

I am lucky enough to have a large collection of books to engage students, but they are useless if students cannot access them. A single bookshelf, something so simple, would provide my students with more books and more opportunities to enjoy and improve their reading.
