Future Readers/Researchers

Help me give my students books to grow their love of reading/research with.

My Students

I teach in a Title I, 80% free and reduced-price lunch and breakfast program, low income, high poverty school district. My students have a strong desire to learn, to progress, and to overcome the many hurdles that impede them from achieving their full potential. My students are a diverse, energetic bunch which includes English Language Learners and all levels of literacy. Many of these students don't have access to quality books of their own. They especially enjoy vibrant picture books which help them to learn STEM concepts and new vocabulary.

My Project

During certain times of the day, I am focused on instructing my small groups. I only service about 5-7 children at a time during small group, while the rest of the children are left to function independently. One expectation they have is to read a book from my library. I feel horrible knowing that I only have 5-7 books on their level.

How can I foster the children's love for reading if I can't afford to give them anything to read?

I have a desperate need to fill those shelves. I know I inspire my children to explore books. We love reading together and finding out new information from books. Next, I want to give the children an opportunity to explore books by themselves.

Being restricted to only a few books makes reading seem restrictive too. Please help me populate my classroom with a colorful array of books. Please help me bring this my dream of inspiring future researchers to light in my classroom.
