My students come from various backgrounds and home situations. They are all at varying levels and very diverse. Diverse in not only their cultures but their learning abilities, behaviors, and socioeconomic status.
More than half of them are on free/reduced lunch.
My lively bunch loves colorful and exciting things in the classroom. They love discussing their weekends when they come back to school on Mondays.
As many teachers know, it can sometimes be difficult to spark a love for reading in our students. I have recently found myself successful when I introduced them to the Harry Potter series. I transformed our classroom and they LOVED every minute of it.
My class is a little community. They are bright young minds that deserve the best!
What was your favorite book to read in Elementary School? Why was it your favorite? Did it help you shut out the world around you?
Reading is essential to learning.
I want to give my students as many options as I can to get lost in a good book. Sometimes it takes just one great book to spark a joy for reading. Classroom libraries are very hard for teachers to expand on their own.
Classroom Library Must-Haves: Grades 2-3 and Newbery Classroom Library Builder: Grades 3+ from Scholastic Book Club will help me expand my classroom library and reach students of different reading levels.
My students vary in reading abilities from a first grade reading level all the way to a sixth grade reading level.
