Growing Readers: Encouraging the Love of Reading

My students need bins to organize our classroom library and book totes so they can share the books they read in class with their families.

My Students

From the minute the morning bell rings, my students greet me with bright smiling faces asking me what are we going to learn about today. My students are always excited about learning. Our school's motto is "We are here to learn, make mistakes, and redesign."

I strive to make my classroom a safe, supported place where my students are not afraid to make mistakes and try again.

My students come to me with different needs, abilities, and backgrounds. They are curious and like to do hands on activities, especially engineering. I love seeing their faces light up when they are successful in their learning.

My Project

These materials will help make our classroom library easily accessible and organized. Students will be able to easily find books on their reading level that they are interested in reading. If students are reading books they love it will encourage a life long love of reading.

I want all of my students to love reading as much as I do!

Reading can take you so many places and teach you so many things! The possibilities are endless!

The book totes are for my students to store their books and also so they can take the books home and read the books to their families to show how they are growing as readers.
