Classroom Library for All Readers

Help me give my students books for the classroom library they deserve as young readers

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I have a very diverse group of sixth graders on many different reading levels. Some love to read and would read all day if they could, while with others, it can take a lot of effort to get them to read.

There are so many different personalities between my two classes and I would love to provide a classroom library that caters to the needs and wants of each student, even those who don't like to read!

I hope to create a classroom library that every student will eventually love going to, whether they are at or below their grade reading level.

My Project

I have some very strong readers in my classes, as well as some very low readers. I am trying to create a classroom library with books that will appeal to all of those readers and give them all a chance to learn to love to read, or just love reading even more! Nothing makes me happier than to see students that are so into a book, whether it's as simple as A Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, or a higher level book like Maximum Ride or Red Pyramid.

A classroom library can truly create a culture of reading in a classroom based on what is in it, and I hope to create that positive reading culture with these books.
