Bookshelves for My Bookworms

Help me give my students two bookshelves to make our classroom books more accessible.

My Students

My second grade class is made of 22 amazing children. They range in diversity and ability, some of whom are autistic and many who receive special education services. We are a Title I school, and all of my students are from low-income households, so they all receive free breakfast and lunch every day.

Though their backgrounds have offered them little advantage, my students LOVE learning, and they work very hard each day.

Their love for reading grows every day. With this project, I'm hoping to complete our classroom library with a bookcase on which to organize and display our books so that kids can easily access them.

My Project

We have some really amazing books in our classroom library--books that are almost as amazing as the kiddos who love to read them! Unfortunately, some of our book bins are hard for my second grade students to reach, so I'm requesting these two bookshelves to store our books in such a way that all of my students can easily reach them. With the hurdle of accessibility removed, there will be nothing holding my students back from becoming the bookworms each of them has the potential to be. Thank you in advance for your help in transforming this wish into reality!
