My students need book baskets so that we can level our classroom libraries. We are building our school's balanced literacy program and we believe in having organized classroom libraries that students know how to navigate.
Our students love living in Hawaii. They are very family-oriented. Students are active and joyful. As a small school with only one class per grade level, our students have progressed through each grade level with the same group of friends. They continue building strong relationships with one another and they find joy in supporting each other.
More than 3/4 of our students come from low income households.
Our students face many barriers to learning and our goal is to support them in overcoming barriers and taking ownership of their learning.
My students need book baskets so that we can level our classroom libraries. We are trying to build a strong balanced literacy program at our school, where reading, writing, and word study are being taught with quality instructional practices and resources. We have very old and outdated books that are falling apart, so we are in the process of trying to acquire fresh new quality books for our students.
By organizing our classroom libraries with quality literature, we believe our students will develop a lifelong love for reading and writing.
Building high quality classroom libraries that our students can feel proud of takes time and effort, but we believe that building abundant libraries our students know how to navigate will be a high-yielding practice.
