Classroom Library

Help me give my students the opportunity to select a book that is instructional for them and will provide motivation by allowing them to select titles according to their interests.

My Students

Our school services a very diverse population. Most of our students are Native American and bring culture to the surface of every day instruction. These students are often overlooked by other opportunities and it is my mission to change that. Although English Language Arts is critical for all students, there are some students who primarily get exposure to ELA through school only. I am seeking to build a classroom library for students to get high exposure to reading and to have a variety of books to choose from.

Help me build my classroom library and give these students the future they deserve.

Because our school has such a diverse population it is exceptionally important for me to prepare my class for college and careers after high school. It is important that they read as much as they can so they may develop the skills necessary to succeed. Thank you so much for stopping by my project!

My Project

I am trying to build up the amount of books I have available in my classroom so students always have a book to read. With this project, I am seeking to offer multiple books that students can explore with, choosing something that is of interest to them and having enough variety that they are always able to select a book that they haven't read. This is an ongoing project and I will continue to build my classroom library up until there is simply not enough room for more. Right now I have only a very few titles students can choose from and really want to get this project off the ground.

Let's build the future together with reading!
