My Project

Coming out of the pandemic, it was clear many students didn't spend quality time with books. My students this year have proven that they WANT to be readers, but they need more help finding books to be invested in. Characters that seem real. Plots that are relevant to their lives.

These classroom library books give me the opportunity to help connect them with more of these stories.

My classroom library has been an invaluable tool in helping connect even my most reluctant readers to books they love. This has been my proudest accomplishment of the 2021-2022 school year.
