My students are an enthusiastic group of learners who love to read and explore all types of books. During our reading workshop time students are allowed to "shop" for the books that they will read during the week.
Books are so important to allow readers to visualize their learning.
My students need more non-fiction books to help them explore more informational learning. The students are always looking for new topics to learn about when it is their time to shop for books and having a bigger variety would be so beneficial to our classroom.
Having non-fiction books in our classroom will help us bring history to life! We love to learn about real life events and people and we need more non-fiction books to do that.
The biographies will help us gain more real life ideas of people in our history.
Non-fiction books help us gain knowledge of such important parts of history, which is something our classroom library is lacking.
We also need a timer to help us keep track of our reading time and different activities through out the day. The timer will help us be more efficient learners so we can use our time wisely.
