This will be my first year teaching, I am moving up with the group of students I did my student teaching with! My students are thoughtful, creative, and fun! They love hands on activities and music! Most come from low income families. My school is title 1 and 68% are on free or reduced lunch. I want to create a safe and nurturing environment for my students to have fun while learning. I want them to enjoy learning and experience things they might not get to at home.
These books will have a dramatic effect on my students! As I am implementing balanced literacy into my classroom these books will allow my students to have choice in what they read. I want each student to have a love of reading which means I need a diverse collection.
I want to individualize their literacy plans.
Choice is important when it comes to reading, I want my students to be able to find books that 1. They can read. 2. They enjoy reading. Starting as a first year teacher this will help me ensure that all my students are able to find books they love.
