I have about 20 kindergarteners this year who are full of life and ready to learn! They are curious and creative but many of them lack the resources at home to feed this curiosity and creativity. My students are also mostly English Language Learners and need a lot of exposure to texts in order to be fully immersed in the English language.
Most of my students come from low income homes where being surrounded by books is a foreign experience for them.
Although this school year has not begun yet, I have begun setting up my classroom this week. In doing this, I realize that although I do have some books, they are in book bins that are falling apart and not easily accessible. I would like to organize my books by genre since my students are doing a genre study this year. Additionally, I would like for my reading area to be more comfortable by adding in the seats.
I want to make my classroom library a place my students want to be.
I cannot do this with only the resources I currently have. My students deserve to have a classroom library that is organized in a way to nurture them and develop them as both learners and readers.
