My students are special to me because they all come from different backgrounds and deserve a lot of love and care. I have students who speak Spanish that need other sources to help them understand the material. I have students who love to read and are ahead of their reading level. I also have students with learning disabilities that need additional help. All students need different models of engagement and as a new teacher, my funds do not let me provide that for them.
As a new 4th grade teacher my goal is to have a fun classroom library that is filled with exciting books to read for students' different tastes. I want to have a variety of genres so that students will find enjoyment in reading that perhaps they never had.
I want to include books of different reading levels in order to make sure that all my students can enjoy our classroom library regardless of their reading level.
I also want to include some Spanish books for my Spanish-speaking students who don't have access to them.
