Classroom Library Needed for Growing Minds

My Students

As a first year teacher at a Title I school, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Most receive free breakfast and lunch. Despite the many challenges they face, they love coming to school everyday and are ready to learn and do their best. They are a wiggly bunch; they love to read and love positive attention. Our school is home to a very diverse community of young students. Many of my students also don't have books at home and would love to use their free time at home to read.

After 6 weeks of teaching in a Kindergarten classroom, my students were reassigned to a new Kinder class, and I became a 2nd grade teacher.

Four students from each 2nd grade class were then placed into mine. We have come a long way since then, and I can happily say that each one of my students is truly enjoying being in my class. I know I had no control of the situation, and while they did struggle at the beginning with me, I know that I do have control over how successful they will become getting prepared for 3rd grade.

My Project

As a first year teacher, my classroom library is not meeting the needs of my students. We are to the point where most of my students have read the same books. As they grow, I cannot keep up with the demand of the books they need to continue their own personal reading goals.

Teaching at a Title I school, unfortunately many of students do not have access to books at home.

My hopes are to expand my classroom library with a broad range of books at different reading levels, so my students will be able to take books home with them to reach their reading goals.
