I am a second year Kindergarten teacher in a new school in Chicago's West Englewood neighborhood. My students are enthusiastic learners and readers, thanks mostly to our classroom library, from which each student gets to choose a book to take home daily. My kids love impressing their families with their reading abilities, and I have had several parents remark about how much they appreciate the lending library. We already have lots of quality books, and it is clear by the torn pages and detached covers which ones are my students' favorites. I have three boxes of books that have been loved beyond repair and need to be replaced, and that's where you come in! I would like to take my Kindergarten class to a local Borders bookstore and let each student choose a book to purchase for our classroom library. Not only would our library be replenished with hand-picked favorites; my students would also feel a sense of accomplishment from contributing to the success of future Kindergarten classes. I cannot think of a better way to wrap up the year and leave my students with the feeling that a little part of them remains in my room. Thanks in advance for the support!
