Help me give my students build a classroom library with at least 10 books for each student.
I teach in an elementary school that is part of a large school district. My students are are very smart and have a great sense of humor. They love working in cooperative groups and are very kind and helpful to one-another. They adore math and science, and are always eager to tell anyone they can about what they've learned.
There is a buzz about books in our classroom.
Students are provided with many opportunities to discuss what they are reading in small groups, large groups, and with reading buddies. The more books available for students, the greater the buzz becomes.
Our new Superintendent has challenged teachers to create a “book-rich” environment in every classroom. Book access is a significant factor in literacy development. Research shows that students in classrooms with high-quality classroom libraries read 50 percent more than students who do not have access to a library in the classroom. Teachers are encouraged to be “choosy” about the books in a classroom library and to avoid purchasing every outdated and dog-eared book from yard sales. Students need to get excited about the books in the classroom library. Having a high-quality classroom library would allow me to present and display books in enticing ways that encourage and prompt interest, dialogue, and thinking. With a growing classroom library, the buzz about books in our classroom will bloom!
