My little ones are beyond special! They are so diverse with rich unique experiences that they unknowingly share with each other in the most special way. A decent amount of our children are immigrants and were refugees from the Middle East, Africa, and Southern Asia. English is the second language for over 50% of my students. There are about eight languages spoken within my classroom. Eight-five percent of the families we serve are low income, and our student population is extremely diverse, consisting mostly of Asian, Hispanic, and black children. My students have a lot to overcome, but they also have a lot to contribute to the world and our country. They are so ready, willing and eager to learn and succeed.
Book bins are so important for maintaining an organized, functioning, inviting classroom library. They make the process of selecting books less complicated. They make it easier to organize books by levels and genres, which removes barriers that might discourage students from selecting books and reading it. The plastic book bins also make the library look more inviting, which will increase students’ interest in finding out what's in them.
We need book bins that can withstand the constant handling of 6 year olds.
Plastic sturdy book bins are easier to handle and move around the room. However, our current cardboard book bins are falling apart, and they are not inviting or sturdy. These new materials will make the process of selecting and engaging in the reading materials in the classroom a lot easier. Please consider helping us create a library that is organized, engaging, warming, and welcoming.
