Classrooms Filled with Shelves of Books Creates Readers for Life
Help me give my students the shelving they need so they can easily pick the books they are excited to read by having an organized classroom library with easy access to a variety of high interest genres.
As a Title I school with students who are at 65% free and reduced lunch, I have extremely hard working learners committed to being the best they can be.
Curious, passionate, and hardworking; my students are eager to immerse themselves in reading, especially with a variety of genres.
My learners are not quite on grade level and 10 out of 24 of my learners are on Read Act Plans. I am working very hard to change that by providing high interest, a variety of genres and differentiated leveled text to engage and empower our students with more choice in text selection. In doing so, I need the bookshelves to organize my books so my children can easily access them. The shelving will also provide an organized home like feeling.
I am getting over 300 books from my school district, and I need bookshelves to store them in. By making the space in my classroom aesthetically pleasing, I am striving for a kid-friendly classroom library, Starbucks style! I am going to label and organize these shelves into a variety of genres, so my learners will have easy access to books and exposure to high-quality reading.
My goal is for my learners to own their learning; own their future by developing good reading habits and wanting to read because they can't wait to read their favorite author, series, or genre.
With an organized classroom library, I feel my readers will enjoy and want to read, especially with new books to delve into.
