My students need books for our classroom library. Since this is my first year teaching I am starting out with minimal books and resources. That being said, anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated!
The school year has not started yet but I am trying to get a head start on preparing my classroom library. That being said, I don’t know my first graders yet but I am planning on teaching them to have a love for reading so books for them will be a necessity. Ideally, I would like to have a large variety (different genres, and topics) of books for them to choose from so there are options for every student in my classroom.
These books will make a difference in my first grade classroom because they will provide me with the opportunity to set up a print rich environment. Starting a love for reading at a young age is very important and that’s exactly what I plan on doing with these books. These books will be used during literacy circles (small groups), morning work, and any other free time that the students would like to grab a book. I would like to have a large variety of books so that there are options for all of the different interests in my classroom. I cannot wait to set up my library and kick off a year full of reading!
