My Students

I am the librarian to students in grades 4K-6. We emphasize reading and the library is the place to get books. I try and get students excited about books in order for them to enjoy their time reading. Students care for the books as if the books belonged to them; they inform me when pages are ripped or when book bindings break. The students love to read and I would love to provide them the best book I can for them.

Our elementary school is comprised of approximately 670 students with 44% economically disadvantaged.

My Project

The books on this list range from beginner chapter books to must-read chapter books for older students. These books will be added to our school library where teachers and students will be able to check them out and add to their classrooms throughout the year. Teachers will be able to use multiple copies of the books listed to accompany their curriculum lessons, book reports, and literacy needs.

Our current copies of the books listed are falling apart and in order for students to read and enjoy a wonderful book, I hope to provide a fresh, new but familiar look to our books!

Reading books that have ripped pages, wrinkled, or stained, will sometimes push young readers away from books. Instead, students see the damage and miss the awesome story being told.
