My Students

Our classroom library is an essential resource for my students. Many of my students do not have access to books at home and rely on our classroom library to check out high-quality books.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves reading, although the materials they have access to vary greatly.

Without access to a school library, many students don't get the opportunity to read a variety of quality literature. Often times, they have the same book in their possession until someone can take them to the Public Library. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! Having a variety of books at their fingertips would be phenomenal! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

These leveled 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 also be able to choose books from the mobile storage cart, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.
