My students are as great as great can be! They are mostly from low-income families but work very hard to be successful each day. At home, they have limited resources, while at school we are in need of ways to make our classroom more engaging. I only have about 8 iPads and 1 student computer to use for many programs. I need some resources to have several centers in my room going at one time. Help us to become better readers!
By adding a classroom literacy station, my students will be able to have easy access to books to fulfill their AR goals. As they read more, their goals and achievements will make them better readers and writers! It is important that my students learn ways to connect reading and writing to be one. With more opportunities, my students will be able to have a greater understanding of literature, writing and enhance their speaking abilities too using more academic language. So with these books from Scholastic, my students will be able to have knowledge rich resources of fiction and nonfiction books at their fingertips to enjoy on a daily basis. These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy-I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind-I have watched them the past few weeks of school read titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of books they would enjoy reading. Students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.
