Help me give my students books they want (Diary Of a Wimpy Kid), the books they'll enjoy (Lunar Chronicles), and the books that will encourage them to love reading (Scary Stories, Olympians, Smile, Sisters, On the Court, etc...)
My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They love challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. They are my inspiration!
Unfortunately, we do not have a library in our school, so we have had to come up with some creative ways to get them the books they need, want, and deserve.
The teachers here have asked friends and neighbors, gone to library book fairs, and Book Fariy book drives. When I bring a box of books to school it is like seeing kids on Christmas morning. I wish you could see the looks on their faces. They are eager to see what I have brought, and quick to find a good book. It's not that our kids don't want to read, it's just that we don't have what they need.
In our Title 1 school, we have no library. The ELA teachers do what we can to support the students, in their quest to find reading materials that they love. We have spent much of own time and money acquiring some awesome books in order to create a library in our ELA classroom, but we need more help!
Our kids love graphic novels, basketball, Middle School books, scary stories, and more.
We need to get these amazing books into the hands of our awesome, but struggling readers. We asked them to fill out a wish list, so here it is!
