I Can't Find My Book - Again!

My students need 4 sets of library shelf markers and 6 sets of various bookmarks to help keep track of our books.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My 28 eager 4th graders are bookworms and I love it! There's only one slight problem...the organization of our books. I have students checking out 2 or 3 books at a time from our classroom library. (Don't ask me how they can read them at the same time, but somehow they manage. I am still in awe by their efforts.) When they check out so many books, they often forget where the book is shelved and our library ends up a giant mess. Books are in the wrong section and no one can seem to find the book they want. Most of my students are far below grade level, so I need to do everything to encourage their reading. I could restrict my students to one book, but I feel this would place limitations on their learning and reading passion. Therefore, I'm seeking 4 sets of durable shelf markers to help my 4th graders improve their organizational skills, ensure each book in its appropriate section, and make checking-out a book an easier process. I am also asking for 6 sets of bookmarks to maintain my students' reading interest. My 4th graders are always using scratch paper or my post-its to mark their spot, so the new bookmarks would be a nice treat. We will have enough to share the bookmarks with their weekly, first grade reading buddies. By your generous donation, you will help speed up our library process and ensure that all books are returned properly. This will guarantee that every student has an opportunity to find their desired book. I am a firm believer that reading takes you to a new world. With your assistance, you can help my urban students escape their concrete environment and travel to uncharted places.
